WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Ebersole and Stritch return to their musical home to perform a special seasonal showcase entitled Winter Wonderland, featuring classic holiday & wintertime standards including "White Christmas," "All I Want For Christmas Is You" and Kay Thompson's "The Holiday Season," mixed with more-recent favorites. Additionally, the duo will perform songs from her recently-released CD, "Sunday In New York." Wbersole last graced Broadway stages with her tour-de-force dual-role performance as both 'Little' Edie Beale and Edith Bouvier Beale in the critically-acclaimed musical Grey Gardens, for which she won universal critical raves and the 2007 Tony Award® for Best Actress in a Musical, her second in this category. Ben Brantley of The New York Times called it, "Possibly the greatest performance I've ever seen in a musical." In addition to her reputation as one of the leading ladies of the modern stage, Ebersole has also taken Hollywood by storm, in feature films including classics like Amadeus and Tootsie, and as a cast member of the 1981-82 season of NBC's Saturday Night Live. One of the premier pianists and singers on the New York jazz and cabaret scene, Billy Stritch made his Broadway debut in the 2001 Tony®-winning revival of 42nd Street and continues to dazzle audiences in nightclubs and concert halls around the world. A "musician with chameleon-like skills" who "sings and plays the piano with real drive" (The New York Times), Stritch is also a gifted composer, who continues a longtime association with Liza Minnelli, as a producer and arranger of her work.
