Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle

THE spectacular new Made at Curve production of Irving Berlin’s White Christmas is transferring to the West End – to the Dominion Theatre, where it will run for a strictly limited season from Friday, November 15, 2019 to Saturday, January 4, 2020.

Described as a feel-good family musical, White Christmas will star Danny Mac as Bob Wallace and Dan Burton as Phil Davis, both of whom reprise their acclaimed roles following the successful run at Curve, Leicester. Further casting will be announced soon.

Danny Mac’s many theatre credits include Joe Gillis in the recent tour of Sunset Boulevard, Gabey in On The Town at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre and the West End productions of Wicked and Legally Blonde. He can be seen later this year in the touring production of Amélie The Musical in which he’ll star alongside Audrey Brisson.

Mac captured the nation’s hearts and received overwhelming support during his incredible time on BBC1’s Strictly Come Dancing, making it all the way to the final.

Dan Burton (pictured below) was nominated for an Olivier Award for his performance as Tulsa in Gypsy at the Savoy Theatre. His other West End credits include Jersey Boys, The Pajama Game, Chicago, Legally Blonde, Betty Blue Eyes and Guys and Dolls at the Royal Albert Hall.

A timeless romantic comedy to warm hearts of all ages, White Christmas features the classic songs Blue Skies, Sisters and the most famous festive song of all, White Christmas.

White Christmas has music and lyrics by Irving Berlin and a book by David Ives and Paul Blake.
