Curve Leicester's hit revival of White Christmas will transfer to the Dominion Theatre for a run this Christmas.

Directed by the Leicester venue's artistic director Nikolai Foster, the musical will run at the West End theatre from 15 November to 4 January, with Danny Mac (Sunset Boulevard) and Dan Burton (Gypsy) reprising their roles as Bob Wallace and Phil Davis respectively.

The 2000 musical, with book by David Ives and Paul Blake, is based on the 1954 film of the same name and features the iconic Irving Berlin song "White Christmas". It tells of two veterans who form a showbiz duo in the wake of the Second World War.

In his review of the Curve production, WhatsOnStage reviewer Andy Plaice praised the production and said "there is not a weak link in the cast."

The show has choreography by Stephen Mear with set design by Michael Taylor and costume design by Diego Pitarch. Musical supervision is by Stephen Brooker, lighting design by Mark Henderson and sound design by Tom Marshall. Orchestrations are by Larry Blank with new musical arrangements by Jason Carr.

Further casting will be
announced soon.

A special pre-sale for the musical will begin on Thursday 21 March at midday.
