San Diego Musical Theatre presents the stage adaptation of Irving Berlin's beloved 1954 musical film White Christmas at the Birch North Park Theatre this holiday season, complete with a live 22-piece orchestra. Brimming with such timeless Berlin hits as "Blue Skies," "How Deep Is the Ocean?" and the unforgettable title song, White Christmas tells the story of U.S. Army veterans Bob Wallace and Phil Davis, a pair of performers with a successful song-and-dance act after World War II. With romance in mind, the two follow a duo of beautiful singing sisters en route to their Christmas show at a Vermont lodge -- which, as it turns out, just happens to be owned by Bob and Phil's former Army commander. When they learn that the inn's future is in jeopardy, the showbiz gents team up with the sisters and save the day by producing a sparkling, family-friendly holiday show bursting with cheerful dancing, treasured tunes and a generous helping of Yuletide cheer.

this is an outstanding production. All the actors, from the leads right down to the smallest ones, were excellent. I also thought the scenic design worked very well and the lighting was great. I couldn't find one thing to criticise (and I'm told I'm very picky). We thoroughly enjoyed it. for the lady who found the seats uncomfortable, I would recommend asking for loge seating in the future. they cost a little more, but are well worth it.
Quotes & Highlights
- Read an interview with Lyric Opera San Diego General Director Leon Natker who plays Tevye in Fiddler on the Roof.
This rousing musical, based on the stories of Shalom Aleichem, takes place in pre-revolutionary Russia and centers on the life of Tevye, a milkman who is trying to keep his family's traditions in place while marrying off his three older daughters as times are changing and Russia is on the brink of revolution. Tevye is trying to keep everyone, and everything, together even as the daughters want to make their own matches.
Seldom has any musical so magically blended music, dance and literature. The show, based on the stories of Sholem Aleichem, is touching, warm, funny and inspiring, making it a wonderful treat for the whole family. Lyric’s production will feature Leon Natker (formerly Cantor of Congregation Dor Hadash) as Tevye the Dairyman. He will be joined by company favorites Fran Hartshorn as Golde, Susan E.V. Boland as Yente and Ria Carey as Frumah Sarah. Tevye’s daughters will be played by Eileen Bowman (Tzeitel), Megan Weston (Hodel) and Raechele Hans (Chava).
When asked about the show, company Artistic Director J. Sherwood Montgomery said: “Fiddler on the Roof is like visiting your grandmother’s house – a place to get your soul cleansed. Joseph Stein and his collaborators arrived at a remarkably effective mixture that thoroughly entertains without ever losing a sense of connection with the more painful realities that underlie the humor. The show evokes haunting memories of a world that still lingers deep inside us. It is one of those shows you just never forget and always enjoy.”
