Holiday Inn Movie is 1942 musical original movie starring Bing Crosby, Fred Astaire, and Majorie Reynolds. Music by Irving Berlin featuring some truly timeless songs too. Here's a link with a glimpse of the original movie on Youtube, https://youtu.be/kgxObbIqubE.
Lucky for us, Musical Theater West of Long Beach had this production in Long Beach so we purchased tickets for a Sunday evening. The singing and dancing was so enjoyable! Really festive and fun to actual see live performers and not just performers on a movie screen. We both walked away feeling it was a nice switch to the day and I'm glad I made time for us to spend seeing a play. There are so many excuses why we could have not fit it in, but we made seeing a play a priority.
Although going to a play doesn't have to be just Christmas, try to support your local theater. throughout the year. Maybe make it a part of your 2020 calendar too! You do not want local theater to be a lost art. Children are missing out if they have not experienced a real live play experience. There is something about being a part of the audience that a visual movie cannot give you.
