Great Performances: Irving Berlin’s Holiday Inn, The Broadway Musical (2017) PBS

Great Performances: Irving Berlin’s Holiday Inn, The Broadway Musical (2017) PBS

 

Includes:

-A very cute conductor.

-Corbin Bleu!  (He doesn’t have his fro anymore L )

-One of the greatest bromances in history.

-The place to perform is The Pump Room in Chicago!  That’s right around the corner from me!

-A LOT more exposition and build-up than I remember from the movie.  (Read:  when do we get to the good stuff?)

-Tap dancing WHILE jump roping WHILE on beat.  Very impressive.

 

Review:

Oh, I get it.  It’s like a musical for people who don’t like musicals. Well, I like musicals, and I didn’t so much care for this.  It was fine.

(Obviously, this is in a completely different league than the made-for-TV-movies I’ve been watching)

7/10
