Max von Essen, Randy Harrison, Andrew Keenan-Bolger, Santino Fontana, Christina DeCicco Offer A Better Holiday Concert Dec. 16
16 Dec 2012
A Better Holiday Concert, a benefit for the It Gets Better Project, which was "created to show young LGBT people the levels of happiness, potential, and positivity their lives will reach," is presented Dec. 16 from 7-10 PM at XL Nightclub.
The evening is raising funds for the Ali Forney Center, the nation’s largest organization working on behalf of runaway and homeless LGBTQ youth; the AFC had a vital drop-in center destroyed by Hurricane Sandy in late October.
The night kicks off with a cocktail party from 7-8 PM, where photographer Victor Haim's art will be showcased and sold. Fifty percent of the proceeds will go to the AFC, on top of all proceeds from ticket sales.
Dinner with the Boys is the deliciously hilarious new comedy starring Dan Lauria (“The Wonder Years”, Lombardi), Ray Abruzzo (“The Sopranos”) and Richard Zavaglia (“Donnie Brasco”). When two wise guys from the old neighborhood, Charlie (Lauria) and Dom (Zavaglia), find themselves at odds with the family, they must serve up perfectly seasoned performances with their puttanesca to escape danger. This odd couple awaits their fate as they prepare dinner for their special guests. It’s an evening filled with belly laughs, killer plot twists and plenty of garlic. The only question remaining is “will this dinner be their last meal?"
