Here's how the evening is billed: "Julie spills the showbiz beans in this special one-night-only event, with snappy stories and original songs sure to dazzle any music theatre lover. A fast-paced romp of a variety show with rollicking new songs, long-lost Broadway gems, and an impromptu visit with celebrities in the audience, the show is a delight for Broadway fans and pop-culture geeks alike. With new songs by long-time collaborator Aaron Hagan, Julie rolls back the radio curtain on what it takes to run the only 24-7 Broadway radio station in the world while juggling jingles for Howard Stern, working the Red Carpet at the Tonys, and recording chatfests with all her theatre heroes back at the SiriusXM studios. It's a classic evening of favorite tunes with an unconventional style and surprising twists as Julie comes out to the world as the songstress, storyteller and comedienne she truly is."
Show time is 9:30 PM.
James is best known as the host of "Broadway Names with Julie James." In The Julie James Show, James will utilize her three-and-a-half octave range (with stories and songs) to reveal a childhood obsession with jingles, theme songs and cast albums, as well as a performance background in opera and musical theatre, that would lead her to her role at SiriusXM.
