A New York City Christmas, a 10 PM concert, will feature Broadway stars "singing fresh, original approaches — pop, soul, rock and more — to favorite holiday songs." Currently scheduled to perform are Raul Esparza, Lauren Pritchard, Chester Gregory, Sierra Boggess, Tyler Maynard, Tory Ross and Lindsay Mendez. The artists, who are all donating their time, will be backed by a live band.
Conceived, produced and musical-directed by Drama Desk-nominated orchestrator Lynne Shankel, the evening will feature direction by Olivier Award nominee Stafford Arima.
Proceeds from the evening will support ASTEP's mission to "create positive change for young people in need across the globe."
The Zipper Factory is located in Manhattan at 336 West 37th Street, between 8th and 9th Avenues. The $20 cover charge includes the performance and a chance to enter into a special Holiday Raffle; visit www.thezipperfactory.com for tickets.
