Theater Thursday

Before we begin this week's Theater Thursday let's take a moment of silence to honor our last Christmas Edition.... For our last edition we will be looking at my favorite Christmas movie: White Christmas
Can I just say how much I love this movie? I do! I love it! 
White Christmas was inspired by Bing Crosby's other holiday theme movie, Holiday Inn. White Christmas stars, Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye as two war veterans who team up in the world of show business. Along the way, they become very successful and have a lavish production. 

One night while doing a favor "for an old pal in the army" they watch a sister act featuring Judy and Betty Hanes. Bob and Phil become enchanted with them. When the girls find themselves in a jam, the boys quickly come to their aid by helping them escape to the train station. Before we know it their all on the same train and on their (unsuspecting) way to Vermont. 
Upon their arrival, the guys run into their retired, commanding general. The general happens to be in the owner of the Inn they're staying at. After a few talks, Bob and Phil find out that the general is having a hard time having ends meet. Being the performers that they are, they decide to put on a production to try people in. 
White Christmas is by far my favorite Christmas movie ever. Coincidentally, AMC is having a marathon of it all day today. Check it out! You won't be disappointed! 
Merry Christmas Eve!!!
