Irving Berlin’s Holiday Inn, produced in association with Universal Stage Productions, also starred Tony nominees Bryce Pinkham and Megan Lawrence, and Danny Rutigliano and Megan Sikora. The musical opened on Broadway October 6, 2016, and was captured live on 14 high-definition cameras at Roundabout’s Studio 54.
The musical was directed by Gordon Greenberg and choreographed by Tony nominee Denis Jones. With music and lyrics by Irving Berlin, the new book by Greenberg and Chad Hodge was inspired by the Academy Award-winning film Holiday Inn starring Fred Astaire and Bing Crosby.
