Jim leaves the bright lights of show business behind to settle down on his farmhouse in Connecticut… but life just isn’t the same without a bit of song and dance. Jim’s luck takes a spectacular turn when he meets Linda, a spirited schoolteacher with talent to spare. Together they turn the farmhouse into a fabulous inn with dazzling performances to celebrate each holiday, from Thanksgiving to the Fourth of July. But when Jim’s best friend Ted tries to lure Linda away to be his new dance partner in Hollywood, will Jim be able to salvage his latest chance at love?
The filmed performance of Holiday Inn was produced by BroadwayHD in association with Universal Pictures International. The show was originally live streamed to viewers across the world in an attempt to follow the success of 'She Loves Me', which was the first full-length Broadway production to be streamed online.
BroadwayHD announced in December 2016 that the musical would stream worldwide on January 14, 2017 by a special agreement with Roundabout.
The show was filmed with unprecedented 14 HD cameras placed around the theater. A day following the broadcast, the livestream was made available to viewers for 10 days due to the many technical difficulties the livestream faced.
The musical eventually had a brief cinema run in US movie theaters and later became available on the BroadwayHD platform.
The 75th anniversary DVD & Blu-Ray release of the original film of Holiday Inn from Universal included a special extra disc that included the full Broadway production as filmed by BroadwayHD. The DVD & Blu-Ray are still available to purchase through Amazon.
