On Saturday, December 8, Tony Award-winning songstress Debbie Gravitte returns to Pace Presents and The Michael Schimmel Center for a reprisal of last year's tremendously popular All-Star Holiday Show. Deemed "one of the best voices on Broadway" by the Associated Press, Ms. Gravitte celebrates this winter holiday season with the support of a stellar team of Braodway veterans including academy Award-nominated, Tony, Emmy, and Grammy Award-winning composer Marc Shaiman (Hairspray, NBC's "Smash," Sleepless in Seattle, First Wives Club) as well as Broadway star and Tony-nominee Norm Lewis (Porgy and Bess, The Little Mermaid, Les Miserables) for this all-ages evening of holiday fun.
The Pace Presents All-Star Broadway Holiday Show will be supported by an eighteen-piece live orchestra, The Russ Kassoff Orchestra, as well as the newly formed Broadway By The Year Chorus, comprising over two dozen up-and-coming musical theater stars. The event is proudly produced by Karen Giombetti.
A highlight of the evening is sure to be when audiences are encouraged to sing along to such classics as "Jingle Bells" and "Silent Night."
