On Dec. 17 the singing actor will present Christmas in Black and White at the New York nightspot. Show time is 9:30 PM.
The evening, according to press notes, "reflects on the feeling you would get from watching those classic black-and-white Christmas specials. As the evening progresses, the show turns to color, and a celebration of the holiday season will begin." Cabaretgoers can expect to hear tunes by Gershwin, Rodgers and Hammerstein, Johnny Mercer, Lerner and Loewe, Rodgers and Hart and more.
