With her joyful sass and pizzazz, singer, actress, and comedian Ana Gasteyer hosts a good old-fashioned holiday party.

From the mind of Gerard Alessandrini — the award-winning creator of the theatrical legend Forbidden Broadway and the recent hit Spamilton — comes a new nightclub presentation, Anything Can Happen in the Theater: The Songs of Maury Yeston. Alessandrini puts aside poison-pen parody for this stylish celebration of the music of Maury Yeston, the man behind the Tony Award-winning shows Nine, Grand Hotel, and Titanic. Featuring Yeston's best-known songs plus new numbers never before performed in public, Anything Can Happen in the Theater boasts a cast that includes Tony nominee Robert Cuccioli (Jekyll and Hyde), Jill Paice (An American in Paris), New York City cabaret sensation Alex Getlin, and others. Music direction is by Greg Jarrett (Dames at Sea).
Best in Shows, a star-studded cabaret evening benefitting the Humane Society of New York, honors James L. Nederlander, president of the Nederlander Organization. He'll receive the third annual Humane Society of New York's Sandy Fund Award in recognition of his deep concern and support for rescued animals. Nederlander has a special connection to the Sandy Fund, which is named in honor of the original canine star of Broadway's Annie. His father, James M. Nederlander, produced the legendary musical and thereby gave Sandy his very first acting job. Sandy quickly became a Broadway star, playing 2,363 performances of Annie and performing for two American presidents at the White House.
This, the fourth annual Best in Shows event, is presented by Dorothy and Bill Berloni. Music direction is by Seth Rudetsky, who also hosts the show, which features some of Broadway's brightest performers: Joanna Gleason, Andrea McArdle, Brad Oscar, Laura Osnes, and Karen Ziemba. Surprise two- and four-legged guests will be joining them. The evening's cabaret performances begin at 7pm, to be followed by a reception with cast members for premium ticket buyers.

Actor and cabaret singer Stephanie Trudeau will perform a return engagement of her docu-cabaret, Chavela: Think Of Me. She introduced the show there last spring and has been invited back in response to the appreciation of her audience and an enthusiastic review.
The piece, written and performed by Trudeau, is more than a musical cabaret based on the songs of legendary Mexican singer Chavela Vargas. It is also a documentary theater project that traces the famed ranchera singer's artistic evolution and the key relationships of her life. These relationships include musical mentor José Alfredo Jiménez (the world's greatest composer of ranchera songs), the painters Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo, the great Cuban courtesan Macorina, and the producers, notably Pedro Almodóvar, who enabled her comeback at age 74 after a 15-year battle with alcoholism.
