The event helps raise funds for the non-profit organization Stockings With Care, which anonymously grants the Christmas-morning wishes of children from families in crisis. From 7-11 PM a host of theatre and television celebrities will rotate behind the bar.
In addition to Tveit ( Catch Me If You Can), Martin ( Rent), Hickey ( The Normal Heart), Baker ( Good People) and LaChanze ( The Color Purple), participants include Carrie Preston ("True Blood"), Rys Coiro ("Entourage"), Blair Brown ( Copenhagen), Dean Winters ("30 Rock"), Kate Mulgrew ( Equus), Scott Cohen ("Pan Am"), Dylan Baker ( God of Carnage), Phyllis Somerville ("The Big C"), Annie Parisse ( Becky Shaw) Diane Neal ("Law & Order"), Danny Pino ("Law & Order"), Kelli Giddish ("Law & Order"), Kathryn Erbe ("Law & Order"), Nancy Giles ("CBS News Sunday Morning"), Zuzanna Szadkowski ("Gossip Girl"), Austin Peck ("As The World Turns") and Terri Conn ("One Life To Live").
Additional guest bartenders are expected to be announced.
There is a $20 cover, and all tips raised by the bartenders will be donated to Stockings with Care. The event also promises a silent auction and a raffle.
The Hudson Station Bar and Grill is located at 440 Ninth Avenue between 34th and 35th Streets. Visit StockingsWithCare.org.
