A Better Holiday: A Concert to Benefit the It Gets Better Project, which celebrates the holiday season with songs of hope, will be held at Joe's Pub Dec. 5 at 9:30 PM.



The evening, which features musical direction by Dominick Amendum (Wicked), will include performances from Tony Award nominee Andrew Rannells (The Book of Mormon), Nellie McKay, Rebecca Naomi Jones (American Idiot, Passing Strange), Monica Raymund ("The Good Wife"), Dee Roscioli (Wicked), Michael Arden (Big River), Tituss Burgess (The Little Mermaid, Guys & Dolls) and Max von Essen (Les Miserables), among others.

Proceeds from the performance will benefit the It Gets Better Project, an organization created by Dan Savage and Terry Miller in September 2010 in response to the number of LGBT youth who took their lives after being bullied in school.

A Better Holiday will be presented by Rebecca Atwood and Kyle Luker of The Group Entertainment.
