"a heartwarming production that perfectly captures the warmth and spirit of the season. Based on the beloved 1954 film of the same name and featuring the well-known songs of Irving Berlin, this musical brings joy, laughter, and a big dose of romance to the ABT stage with its talented cast, rich creative elements, and infectious and energetic dancing....While the majority of the leads are somewhat younger than I've seen in other productions, they are all talented singers, actors and dancers. ... the production's choreography is fantastic, infusing the stage with energy and charm and numerous showstopping dance numbers that all feature varied and bright steps....a wonderful combination of timeless songs, romance, and comedy, and a joyous addition to the holiday season."  - Gil Benbrook, (click here to read the complete review)

" leaves no snowball unturned in delivering a show that lights the fire in one’s heart and virtually re-connects you with good old-fashioned virtues.... A production with this high level of quality owes its success to the seamless coordination between the musical direction of Mark Ceppetelli (the orchestra kicks the show into high gear with a rousing overture and doesn’t stop) and the choreography of Lauran Stanis (the ensemble, likewise, sparkles with style and energy)....In its tradition of consistent quality programming, Arizona Broadway Theatre has delivered another that resonates with the kind of good cheer that befits this Holiday Season."  - Herbert Paine, Broadway World (click here to read the complete review)
