Check in for a tap-happy musical about a crooner and a hoofer vying for the affections of a beautiful up-and-coming performer in this new stage adaptation of the beloved 1942 Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire film.
Twenty iconic songs from Irving Berlin’s phenomenal musical catalogue are featured in this celebratory musical spanning four seasons, including “Blue Skies,” “Cheek to Cheek,” “White Christmas,” and more.
When Jim Hardy leaves the bright lights of show business behind to settle down on his farmhouse in Connecticut, he quickly discovers life isn’t quite the same without a bit of song and dance. His luck takes a spectacular turn when he meets Linda, a spirited schoolteacher with talent to spare. Together they turn the farmhouse into a fabulous inn with dazzling performances to celebrate each holiday, from Thanksgiving to the Fourth of July. But when Jim’s best friend Ted tries to lure Linda away to be his new dance partner in Hollywood, Jim must compete for her affections. Can he win her heart?
