Entitled Christmas Eve With Christmas Eve, the event will be held Dec. 12 at The Midtown Theater at 7 PM.
"Christmas Eve, the beloved, opinionated, heavily-accented therapist from Avenue Q," press notes state, "makes her holiday fantasies come true in this evening of song and comedy that both skewers and pays tribute to the great romantic duets and iconic moments of Broadway. No lyricist will be spared as she re-interprets the modern songbook with the help of some of Broadway’s most talented, hilarious and gorgeous leading men."
Special guests will be announced shortly.
Conceived and written by Gary Adler, Harada and Alan Muraoka, the evening will be directed by Muraoka with choreography by Mark Myars and musical direction by Adler.
Harada originated the role of Christmas Eve in both the Broadway and London productions of the Tony Award-winning Avenue Q. Her other Broadway credits include 9 to 5, Les Miserables, Seussical The Musical and M. Butterfly. She recently appeared in the Off-Broadway hit Love, Loss and What I Wore and in George Street Playhouse’s production of God of Carnage.
The Midtown Theater is located in Manhattan at 163 West 46th Street. Tickets, priced $30-$75, are available by calling (212) 840-0770 ext. 229.
