Irving Berlin's Holiday Inn

Holiday Inn is a classic musical with a score by the legendary Irving Berlin. Ted, Lila, and Jim are a trio performing in a nightclub in Yonkers when Jim proposes to Lila, suggesting they give up show business and move to a farm he has bought in Connecticut. When Lila breaks their engagement, Jim worries about his mortgage; he gets the idea to put on a show and convert the farmhouse into a hotel. Holiday Inn is a family show suitable for audience members of all ages.

Recommended for ages 4 and up.


Adult Language: None.


Sexual References:

Linda, the former owner of the farm, tells Jim about how her mother ran off with a Fuller Brush salesman, leaving her and her father alone.

Some of the songs, such as “Heat Wave,” contain double entendres: “Her anatomy / Made the mercury / Jump to ninety-three.”

After being knocked out by Jim, Ted wakes up the next morning in Louise’s bedroom; he asks, “Did we –” and she responds, “Not on your life, kid.”



Ted, who is drunk, kisses Linda; Jim punches him. 



Jim and Louise, the “handywoman” helping him run the farm, drink brandy while listening to Ted and Lila being interviewed on the radio.

A drunken Ted intrudes on the Holiday Inn’s first performance.
