Donny & Marie - A Broadway Christmas, a new holiday stage production starring the showbiz siblings Donny and Marie Osmond, began a limited engagement at the Marquis Theatre Dec. 9. The extended run plays through Dec. 30.



In the holiday tradition of the "Osmond Family Christmas" television specials, Donny & Marie "invite you and your family to join them to celebrate the joy of the season in true Osmond fashion, in person, as the pair share a Broadway stage for the first time," according to the producers. The 21-performance engagement has a press night of Dec. 14, after which reviews will run.

 

The production is directed and choreographed by Barry Lather. The musical director is Jerry Williams.

The ensemble includes Matthew Fish, Karl Hendrickson, Jermaine Johnson, Kelene Johnson, Makinzee Love, Richard McAmish, Jessie Thacker, Jaymz Tuaileva, Ashley Williams and Ivy Michelle Williams.
