The musical Irving Berlin's White Christmas is based on the 1954 film White Christmas, which was itself loosely adapted from the 1942 movie Holiday Inn. While its origin is convoluted, the plot is fairly straightforward. Bob and Phil are army buddies who team up to become a successful song-and-dance team. The duo is currently working on expanding the act to a quartet by putting the moves on the beautiful Haynes Sisters, another set of singers. Those plans are only slightly altered when Bob and Phil learn that their former C.O., General Waverly, owns a failing Vermont inn. The boys convince the girls that together they can put on a show that will again drum up public interest in the inn. Will it work? Well, it is a Christmas story. Irving Berlin's White Christmas is performed at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, 2 and 7:30 p.m. Saturday and 1 p.m. Sunday (November 17 to 22) at the Fox Theatre (527 North Grand Boulevard; 314-534-1111 or www.fabulousfox.com). Tickets are $25 to $100.
