Kerry O'Malley, Meredith Patterson, Stephen Bogardus and Jeffry Denman will be on hand to ring a different kind of holiday bell than they are used to. The 4 PM (ET) Wall Street ritual (typically broadcast internationally and seen on the internet) will also be broadcast in Times Square, which is where White Christmas makes its home (at the Marquis Theatre).
The producers of the limited-run production are happy. For the week of Dec. 15-21, White Christmas was at 98.3 percent of capacity and grossed $1,588,859 (for nine performances).
Irving Berlin's White Christmas is based on the 1954 film of the same name and is packed with Irving Berlin songs, which buoy a tale of showbiz buddies who try to lift the spirits of their former World War II commanding officer. They meet a sister act in the process.
Performances play to Jan. 4, 2009.
