This month I'm returning to the role of Phil Davis in the big, beautiful holiday musical White Christmas. I love this show. Every time I do it, I get to know it all over again, and that usually looks something like this:
Right before the rehearsal process begins, I take a nice, deep breath and think, "This is going to be a cute show."
Then I get into rehearsals, start stressing out about the six minute dance numbers and complain, "This is a big freakin' show!"
Then we have opening night. I see the audience living in the nostalgia they have with this material and finally remember, "This is a really beautiful show."
White Christmas has the right combination of cheese and heart to melt even the chilliest of Scrooges, so come and see us if you're in the San Diego area December 13-22.
And Merry Christmas! May it be filled with family, laughter, and love.
And while we're at it, may it be a white one, too. :)
