Chris Isaacson Presents brings you the perfect Holiday gift of the season, Upright Cabaret's A BROADWAY CHRISTMAS! Coming this Holiday Season, watch Stars and Snowflakes glitter together as Upright combines the best of Broadway with the carols of Christmastime. Cozy up next to your someone special, and be warmed not by an open fire but by yuletide joy and the sweet songs from your favorite musicals like Jersey Boys, Wicked, The Christmas Story, Billy Elliot, Dreamgirls – and more.
With brassy horns and sentimental strings, Upright creates a wonderland of the cheerful arrangements and airy melodies that make Broadway and Christmas all aglow. Under boughs of holly, bathed in a multi-media of silver and gold - with a surprise visit from Santa Claus - our celebrity singers use their suave voices to turn the stage into a true town of tinsel – and make this highly anticipated season's event the perfect way to put you in the holiday spirit.
