According to press notes, "Katie Thompson sets her sights on Christmas, with a night of carols re-written, standards re-imagined, and New York's finest, funniest voices. Having penned three albums and two-and-a-half musicals, this 'rich-voiced powerhouse' promises to 'put the mayhem back in Bethlehem.'"
