According to press notes, "Katie Thompson sets her sights on Christmas, with a night of carols re-written, standards re-imagined, and New York's finest, funniest voices. Having penned three albums and two-and-a-half musicals, this 'rich-voiced powerhouse' promises to 'put the mayhem back in Bethlehem' at 54 Below."
At the 7 PM concert, Thompson will be joined by Rocio Del Mar Valles (Giant), who will sing and drum "The Girl Who Drums"; Ben Cameron (Wicked, Aida); Andrew Kober (Hair); Nick Cordero (Rock of Ages, The Toxic Avenger); Molly Hager (Fat Camp); Julia Mattison (Godspell); Erik Sisco; Frankie James Grande (Mamma Mia!); MJ Rodriguez (Off-Broadway's Rent); and Marty Thomas (Wicked, Xanadu).
Thompson's solo albums include "Private Page," "KT LIVE" and "What I've Done Right." Her musicals include R.R.R.E.D. a Secret Musical. For more information on the songwriter, read Playbill.com's Contemporary Musical Theatre Songwriters You Should Know.
