Holiday Inn



I'm thrilled to share the first casting details for next season's production of Holiday Inn, The New Irving Berlin Musical. The cast will include Bryce Pinkham (Jim), Lora Lee Gayer (Linda), Megan Lawrence (Louise), Megan Sikora (Lila Dixon), Corbin Bleu (Ted), and Lee Wilkof (Danny).

These actors have incredible lists of credits and awards to their names. They have appeared in major Broadway and regional productions (Lora Lee in Doctor Zhivago and Follies; Megan Sikora in Wicked and How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying). They've received multiple Tony nominations (Bryce for his work in A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder, Megan Lawrence for The Pajama Game, and Lee for Kiss Me, Kate). And one helped to launch the recent wave of hugely successful film and television musicals; Corbin was a star of the Emmy Award-winning High School Musical.

Lee Wilkof and Megan Lawrence are longtime members of the Roundabout family, Lee having appeared in She Loves Me (1993) and The Boys From Syracuse and Megan in The Pajama Game. I'm thrilled to welcome the rest of the cast to our stage for the first time, though many of them have been a part of Roundabout readings and workshops in the past -- some in the very development of this musical.

I know this group, under the direction of Gordon Greenberg and with the choreography of Denis Jones, will do a phenomenal job bringing Irving Berlin, Gordon Greenberg, and Chad Hodge's Holiday Inn to life.

Holiday Inn, The New Irving Berlin Musical will begin performances September 1, 2016, at Studio 54. For tickets and more information, please visit our website.

2016-2017 News

HolidayInn_640x640I am proud to announce that Roundabout, in association with Universal Stage Productions, will be producing Holiday Inn, The New Irving Berlin Musical at Studio 54 in the fall of the 2016-2017 season. The production will mark the show’s Broadway premiere, directed by Gordon Greenberg and choreographed by Denis Jones. Inspired by the Academy Award-winning film Holiday Inn, this musical, with music and lyrics by Irving Berlin and a new book by Gordon Greenberg and Chad Hodge, takes some of Berlin’s most iconic songs (including “Steppin’ Out With My Baby” and “Cheek to Cheek”) and weaves them seamlessly together with a wonderful libretto by Chad and Gordon. The result is a romantic, inventive, exceptionally fun musical that feels both fresh and timeless.

Irving Berlin’s music is an indispensable part of the American theatrical and musical canon. His exceptional body of work includes 1,200 songs, the scores for more than a dozen Broadway musicals, and the scores for dozens more Hollywood movie musicals. His credits include the song “God Bless America,” the musical Annie Get Your Gun, and the film Top Hat, among many, many others. I am thrilled to bring more than twenty of his classic songs to life in Holiday Inn.

Co-writer/director Gordon Greenberg and co-writer Chad Hodge have a phenomenal listing of credits between them. Gordon’s career has included shows at Williamstown, Old Globe, Paper Mill, Signature, Goodspeed (where he premiered Holiday Inn), and Huntington, among many others, and his acclaimed revival of Guys and Dolls will open on the West End this winter. Chad has numerous television credits to his name; most recently, he created and executive-produced the FOX series “Wayward Pines.” His other television work includes TNT’s upcoming “Good Behavior” and NBC’s “The Playboy Club.” Along with choreographer Denis Jones (whose recent work includes Broadway’s Honeymoon in Vegas), I know Chad and Gordon will bring exceptional quality to the stage of Studio 54.

Previews are set to begin September 1, 2016. Tickets will be made available to Roundabout subscribers and donors first, on a 2016 date to be announced. I encourage you to join our Email Club for the latest news.
