When thinking of Broadway in recent years, it seems that every classic book or screenplay has been, or will be, turned into the latest musical. In the case of Irving Berlin's White Christmas, one might even wonder: wasn't the movie version of White Christmas already a musical (or a close hybrid)? The first potential obstacle for the project is that anyone who might be attracted to a musical version of White Christmas has probably seen the movie version (many times), and would be listening to a recording of the show as no more than a reference to the original. The second obstacle is that it will probably be difficult for anyone who loves the movie to imagine someone else singing "White Christmas" or "Sisters" better than the original cast. An original cast recording, Irving Berlin's White Christmas nonetheless rushes in to accomplish an impossible task. The cast offers new renditions of "Snow" or "The Old Man" along with other Berlin songs like "Let Yourself Go," adding a theatrical edge to the performances. The overall results are satisfactory, but as one might guess from the overall design of a project that rests so heavily on the shoulders of an earlier success, lacks imagination. ~ Ronnie D.
