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.

Obviously George is amazingly talented; however my 1st experience of him live...22 years ago was much more enjoyable. The North Park theatre was beautiful, but compared to the Denver Performing Arts Complex with its sunken stage and seating which encircles it; the Birch venue doesn't hold a candle for watching a solo piano performance. George's selection of songs was disconnected rather than thematic. The only thing to do was close your eyes and enjoy, which I did with the unsolicited accompaniment of the man next to me who repeatedly drifted into a mild snore. Overall I enjoyed the night with my friends, but would have enjoyed listening to a Winston CD just as well.
George Winston plays over 100 solo piano concerts a year in America and beyond, inspired by the seasons. These concerts feature a variety of styles, including his melodic folk piano, stride piano, New Orleans R&B piano, Vince Guaraldi's Peanuts pieces and more. The two solo piano shows that he plays, always in a state of evolution, are the Summer Show (spring & summer songs) and the Winter Show (fall & winter songs). He also currently plays solo guitar concerts, solo harmonica concerts and solo piano dances (with R&B, slow dance songs and more. George has seven multi-platinum, platinum and gold records and his latest CD is entitled Gulf Coast Blues And Impressions -- A Hurricane Relief Benefit.
