This fresh, award-winning Broadway rendition of the familiar film story follows two WWII Army buddies, Bob Wallace and Phil Davis, who team up to form a successful night club act and move to the Broadway stage, where they become producers with the hit musical Playing Around. While in Florida, they receive a request to audition two sisters, Betty and Judy, who persuade them to travel to Vermont for the holidays and discover that the Columbia Inn in Pine Tree, Vermont, run by their former commanding officer, is about to go bankrupt because of lack of snow. Of course they intercede, and through a number of clever tactics draw large crowds and a reunion of their old division comrades to Pine Tree on Christmas Eve, when snow miraculously begins to fall and everyone raises a glass toasting “May your days be merry and bright, and may all your Christmases be white.” Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye starred in the 1954 film, making famous the Irving Berlin standards Count Your Blessings Instead of Sheep, Blue Skies, How Deep Is the Ocean, I’ve Got My Love to Keep Me Warm, and the memorable title song.
