German-Luxembourgish concert and cabaret star Adrienne Haan has announced that she is putting on five performances of her show "White Christmas - A Tribute To The Life And Music Of Irving Berlin" in the United States next month.
The show will first return to the Triad Theatre in New York City with a big band and some changes, before premiering at the Embassy of Luxembourg in Washington, D.C..
Adrienne Haan will be joined by her stage partner Broadway star Bart Shatto and music director Richard Danley. Written by Laurence Pierron and choreographed by Melanie La Patin, the show features the life story of Irving Berlin and his many connections to the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.
This year marks the 80th anniversary since Irving Berlin wrote the song "White Christmas", as well as that of the bombing on Pearl Harbor (7 December 1941) which inspired the American composer to write the show "This is the Army".
The show "White Christmas - A Tribute To The Life And Music Of Irving Berlin" will be performed at the Triad on Saturday 4 December 2021 at 14:00 (further information available here) and on Tuesday 7 December 2021 at 19:00 (further information here).
Worldwide livestreaming tickets are available for the Saturday show (20:00 CET).
The Luxembourg Embassy premiere, produced by the Embassy Series under the patronage of the new Luxembourg Ambassador to the US, Nicole Bintner, is scheduled to take place on Thursday 9 December 2021 at 19:00 (further information here), followed by a second performance on Friday 10 December 2021 at 19:00 (further information here).
Finally, the show will be presented at the Luxembourg House / Consulate General of Luxembourg (Irving Berlin's former home) on Friday 24 December 2021 (by personal invite only), under the patronage of Luxembourg's new Consul General, Paul Steinmetz.
