White Christmas at Phoenix Theatre Is Dreamy! and Fifty Shades of Felt Is Extended

BIG OL' HOLIDAY THEATER UPDATE: Because of you people and how much you love to go to good plays, White Christmas has added two performances, one this Sunday evening, December 15, and one on Christmas freakin' Eve!

The setup: Irving Berlin's "White Christmas" isn't just the best-selling song ever -- it's the linchpin of two fabulously popular films, 1942's black-and-white Holiday Inn (for which it was first recorded and snagged an Oscar for Best Original Song) and 1954's White Christmas, in glorious Technicolor and high-res VistaVision.

Plot is not the strong suit of either, but they're warm and fuzzy, and the latter was turned into a stage musical in 2004 that's darn near perfect right now at Phoenix Theatre.
