Chicago Tribune - Recommended

"...Still, I’ve seen “White Christmas” more times than I’ve seen the flakes on Dec. 25, and this is a decent cast (it’s a short commitment out on the road, so it attracts a good roster of Broadway talent). Better yet, the emotional key of the show, which is what matters most, turns easily in the lock."

Chicago Sun Times - Highly Recommended

"...This is a lavish, no-expenses-spared production, with high energy direction and tour de force choreography by Randy Skinner. But above all it is driven by a dazzling song list (“Count Your Blessings Instead of Sheep,” “Happy Holiday,” “Sisters,” “How Deep Is the Ocean” and more) and is a reminder that Irving Berlin, who gave this country its most optimistic voice, was the child of a Russian-Jewish immigrant family that landed on these shores in 1893."

Chicago Reader - Somewhat Recommended

"...Director-choreographer Randy Skinner even works in that weird retro gesture where a male dancer has his female partner circle him at arm's length like a prize filly. It's all very well done and jolly, as long as you don't worry about the creepy implications."

Around The Town Chicago - Highly Recommended

"...It is a pretty hokey story, but one that plays well, in particular at this time of year when people are thinking happy thoughts. Let’s face it, with the events that we read and hear about every day, we need as much diversion as we can get, and “holiday cheer” works! Live theater is the best diversion I can think of. Berlin’s music is more than enough to take our minds off the daily news. Songs such as “Sisters”, “Count Your Blessings Instead of Sheep”, “How Deep Is The Ocean”, “The Old Man”, “Happy Holidays” , “Blue Skies”, “I Love A Piano” ( a tremendous TAP number featuring Phil and Judy along with the ensemble), “White Christmas” and many others. With a song book like this, who can ask for anything more?"

Chicagoland Musical Theatre - Highly Recommended

"...The songs, the set, the costumes and the beautiful snow all come together to breathe new life into Irving Berlin’s classic holiday musical, White Christmas. This show shimmers with novelty and nostalgia; family members of all ages will enjoy a lighthearted evening together at the Cadillac Palace."

Chicago Theater and Arts - Highly Recommended

"...Based on the book by David Ives and Paul Blake, with music and lyrics by Irving Berlin, the musical has some fun songs such as “Snow” sung on a train ride from New York up to Vermont, some dated but fun pieces such as “What Can You Do With a General,” sung about the post-army job market, and some famous ones that still are popular when the holidays roll around such as, “Happy Holidays,” “I’ve got My Love to Keep Me Warm,” and of course, “White Christmas.”"

Picture This Post - Highly Recommended

"...White Christmas would fail without a strong ensemble, and Skinner's cast certainly does not disappoint. The ensemble numbers ranging from "Let Yourself Go" to "White Christmas" are full of jazzy choreography and spot-on stage presence that pushes these jaunty scenes over the top."
