The fun-filled annual Upright Cabaret’s A Broadway Christmas revue is playing for one night only at the famed Catalina Jazz Club, Dec. 20. The show will be hosted by two of the most popular and talented American Idol alumni who have been embraced by Broadway-loving fans, Diana DeGarmo and the incredible Ace Young. The evening will also star Tony Award nominee Sam Harris (The Producers), and feature a Broadway choir and other exciting performers, along with an appearance by Santa Claus.
Presented by Upright Cabaret’s creator-producer Chris Isaacson, the show marks the sixth annual Christmas concert, which is one of their most popular concerts of the year. Isaacson said, “All of the performers get really passionate about performing the holiday songs, so there is definitely a spirit of joy in the room. And when you get a room full of Broadway belters plus Santa Claus, all kinds of things are possible.”
The show’s wonderful feeling comes from the performers spreading the joy of the season with the audience. Isaacson explained, “The audience and performers are so happy to be celebrating the holiday together. And we have brought in the very best Santa Claus and a slew of incredible singers.”
The sensational Diana DeGarmo is currently on the Young and the Restless soap and has been in the National Tour of 9 to 5 in the Dolly Parton role. With Broadway shows to her credit, she is recording a country album and has a movie coming out next year, all adding to her sky-rocketing career. Isaacson said he is thrilled that she will be singing the Mariah Carey hit “All I Want for Christmas Is You.” It should be a show-stopper for A Broadway Christmas.
It’s a dazzling “don’t-miss-it” show, according to Isaacson, “because it’s so rare to get this many talented people under one roof, and there are going to be a whole lot of surprises.”
A Broadway Christmas plays Tuesday, Dec. 20, at the Catalina Jazz Club located at 6725 Sunset Blvd. in Hollywood. Two shows at 8 p.m. and 10 p.m., tickets are $25 for reserved seating, $35 for VIP Main Room seating. For tickets, call (818) 736-5600 or go to www.uprightcabaret.com/events.
