Cinderella's Ann Harada will revisit the role of Avenue Q's Christmas Eve — the opinionated, heavily accented therapist — for one evening to benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.



The annual Christmas Eve With Christmas Eve will be held Dec. 2 at 7 PM at XL Nightclub, located at 512 West 42nd Street.

Broadway favorite Harada will be joined by Adam Chanler-Berat, Santino Fontana, Jordan Gelber, Greg Hildreth, Jose Llana, Leslie Odom Jr., Howie Michael Smith, Wesley Taylor and Max von Essen.

The evening of song and comedy, according to press notes, "skewers and pays tribute to the great romantic duets and iconic moments of Broadway. No lyricist will be spared as Christmas Eve re-interprets the modern songbook with the help of some of Broadway’s most talented, hilarious and gorgeous leading men."

The evening is directed by Alan Muraoka with choreography by Rommy Sandhu and music direction by Gary Adler.

Harada originated the role of Christmas Eve in both the Broadway and London productions of the Tony Award-winning Avenue Q. She's currently featured as stepsister Charlotte in Cinderella. She previously appeared on Broadway in 9 to 5, Les Miserables, Seussical The Musical and M. Butterfly.
