‘White Christmas’ returns to Broadway

Musical sets eight-week run at Marquis Theater

Tuner “Irving Berlin’s White Christmas” has confirmed it’ll be back for a second holiday run on Broadway, returning to the Marquis Theater for a run of about eight weeks.

Producers had previously announced their intentions to make the yuletide musical an annual attraction in Gotham. Once the current Marquis occupant “9 to 5” announced it would shutter in September, “Christmas” became the expected candidate to step in.

Creative team of last season’s Rialto staging of “Christmas,” including helmer Walter Bobbie and choreographer Randy Skinner, return to stage the show, which has a book by David Ives and Paul Blake incorporating a number of Berlin tunes.

Based on the 1954 movie musical, “Christmas” follows two stage performers who put on a show at an inn in Vermont. Legit tuner originated in 2004 as a franchise that continues to play multiple productions around the country during the holidays. Show first arrived on Broadway last year.

Kevin McCollum, John Gore, Tom McGrath, Paul Blake, The Producing Office, Dan Markley, Sonny Everett and Broadway Across America produce in association with Paramount Pictures.

Casting for the upcoming Gotham incarnation remains to be announced. “Christmas” will run Nov. 13-Jan. 3 at the Marquis.
