The concert, produced by and benefiting Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, will be held at 7 PM at The Cutting Room.

Christmas Eve, played by Harada, will be joined by Broadway's "hunkiest men to reinterpret everything you know about Broadway romance in Christmas Eve's shamelessly unapologetic exploration of the modern songbook. Expect singing, dancing and laughter without a single drop of political correctness," according to press notes.

The lineup of Broadway "hunks" includes John Bolton (Dames at Sea), Joe Carroll (Cinderella), Jordan Gelber (Avenue Q), Adam Jacobs (Aladdin), Telly Leung (Allegiance), Jose Llana (The King and I), Joel Perez (Fun Home), Tony Award winner Michael Rupert (On the Town), Robert Sella (Sylvia), Ryan Silverman (Side Show) and Howie Michael Smith (Avenue Q), among others. Allegiance's Dan Horn and Kevin Munhall will serve as Christmas Eve's dancers.

Holiday Hunkfest will be directed by Alan Muraoka with choreography by Darren Lee and music direction by Gary Adler. The show was conceived and written by Adler, Harada and Muraoka.

Harada originated the role of Christmas Eve in both the Broadway and London productions of the Tony Award-winning Avenue Q. Most recently, she appeared in the Off-Broadway superhero show Brooklynite.

The Cutting Room is located at 44 East 32nd Street. Tickets, which range from $30-$75, are on sale at BroadwayCares.org.
