It was a perfectly festive show for the season!

I attended Opening night and just loved it. I love the movie and wasn’t sure how I’d feel about seeing it translated on stage, but there was no need for worry. It was a great show.

The experience started with a red carpet arrival of the stars.

And carolers entertained the fans waiting for the arrivals and then moved inside to single in the lobby of the Wang.

Finally it was time to grab our seats.

The show began and soon enough there were the songs that are oh-so-catchy from the film like “Sisters.”

And I loved the scene on the train to Vermont.

I can STILL hear “Blue Skies.”

The piano tap scene was my favorite though. The signing and dancing was amazing. It might have actually been my favorite scene on stage all year. Kudos to the wonderfully talented actors and actresses in this show.

And, the finale! It was great. I wish it lasted just a little bit longer. There’s a surprise at the end of the finale that I won’t reveal, but it’s a perfect touch for a near perfect performance.
