          The festive Roundabout Theatre Company production of Irving Berlin's Holiday Inn comes to PBS, continuing the Great Performances marathon within its Fall Broadway's best lineup.
 
          Holiday Inn tells the story of Jim, who leaves the bright lights of Broadway—as well as his fiancé dance partner Lila—to settle down at an old farmhouse in Connecticut … but life just isn’t the same without a bit of song and dance. Jim’s luck takes a turn for the better when he meets Linda, a spirited schoolteacher with talent to spare.
 

          Together they turn the farmhouse into a seasonal inn with show-stopping 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?
 
          Songs include such Irving Berlin all-time classics as “Shaking the Blues Away,” “Heat Wave,” “Blue Skies,” “Cheek to Cheek,” “It's a Lovely Day Today,” “Easter Parade,” and, of course, “White Christmas.”
