Norm Lewis Wishes You a Swingin’ Christmas, according to press notes, "is an all-new show that will help you ring in the holidays and remind you why he is one of Broadway’s greatest singers and most sought-after leading men. Norm and his swingin’ band put a mark on holiday classics, sing some of the songs he is famous for, and surprise you with some you would never expect to hear him sing."
Lewis said in an earlier statement, "To be in the heart of Manhattan at this time of year and share the holidays with an audience is something I’ve always dreamed of doing. It’s like having your own TV Christmas Special…Only LIVE! I am really looking forward to it and we’ve already started rehearsing …so I’m ready for some surprises. I also plan on inviting some SPECIAL GUESTS to join me for each of the nights."
