“ˆHoliday Inn, The New Irving Berlin Musical is a 2016 Broadway musical based on the 1942 film of the same name. The libretto is by Gordon Greenberg and Chad Hodge, with music and lyrics by Irving Berlin. Based on the classic film, this joyous musical features thrilling dance numbers, laugh-out-loud comedy, and a parade of hit Irving Berlin songs, including “Blue Skies,” “Easter Parade,” “Steppin’ Out With My Baby,” “Heat Wave,” and “White Christmas.” Irving Berlin’s “Holiday Inn” tells the story of Jim, who leaves the bright lights of show business behind to settle down on his farmhouse in Connecticut. He quickly discovers life isn’t the same without a bit of song and dance. So Jim and Linda, a spirited schoolteacher with talent to spare, turn the farmhouse into a fabulous inn that celebrates each holiday, from Thanksgiving to the Fourth of July.
