    Just Like the Ones You Used to Know: Song, Dance and Fluffy White Endings

    Charles Isherwood

    November 24, 2008: Given the grim tidings from everywhere these days, a longing for the seasonal comforts of happier yesteryears is understandable. Still, you’d have to be in a desperately, even pathologically nostalgic mood — trawling the Internet in the wee hours for VHS copies of Lawrence Welk holiday specials, say — to derive much joy from the stage retread of “White Christmas,” a synthetically cozy trip down memory lane.

    Who diluted the holiday cheer? The festivities are muted and mild in "Irving Berlin's White Christmas," a lavish, yet surprisingly bland stage adaptation of the popular 1954 movie.

    There hasn't been this much tap-dancing on a Broadway stage since "42nd Street." Yet despite its relentless effervescence, "Irving Berlin's White Christmas" is most alive in its gentler, more melancholy moments -- few as there are. Arriving in New York after multiple regional stops in the past four seasons, and aiming to establish itself as an annual holiday engagement, this somewhat mechanical show feels like a road production staffed with mostly second-tier talent. More seasonal confection than full-bodied musical theater, it coasts along on the strength of its melodious numbers and sparkling visuals, which should suffice to keep the tourist trade happy.

    As far as holiday entertainment goes, “Irving Berlin’s White Christmas” easily wins our vote for the most professional and crowd-pleasing show in an overstuffed genre that includes “The Radio City Christmas Spectacular,” “Wintuk,” “A Christmas Carol,” “The Nutcracker” and “How the Grinch Stole Christmas.”
