Ring in the holidays with Tony® Award winner Debbie Gravitte & Friends for an All-Star Holiday Show at The Ridgefield Playhouse on Friday, December 14, at 8 p.m. The star-studded cast includes The Russ Kassoff Orchestra featuring members of The Ridgefield Symphony Orchestra, Sal Viviano, star of the hit off-Broadway show Closer than Ever, international opera star Bill Joyner plus local talent including Carrie Pin & the Macdonald-Pin Dancers, A Cappella 8 of Ridgefield High School and the Holiday Spectacular All-Star Kids Chorus featuring kids who have performed with Debbie in the past.

This Ridgefield Magazine Broadway and Cabaret Series?event is partially underwritten by Adam Broderick Salon & Spa with media sponsor WMNR Fine Arts Radio 88.1fm. A free glass of wine with dinner is being offered at Sarah’s Wine Bar (upstairs at Bernard’s on West Lane in Ridgefield), and Bernard’s will offer a $45 special prix-fixe pre-show dinner when tickets are presented; reservations suggested.

“One of the best voices on Broadway!”, raves Queens Courier Buzz about Debbie Gravitte who, along with her shining cast, will sing holiday favorites -- “Santa Claus is Coming to Town”, “Twelve Days of Christmas” (with audience participation!), “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” plus some of the songs that helped make the stars famous in hit shows such as “Memory” (Cats) and “Defying Gravity” (Wicked). Ms. Gravitte earned a Tony® award for Best Featured Actress in A Musical for Jerome Robbins’s Broadway.
