Daniel Reichard, star of THE MIDTOWN MEN, will again delight fans with his annual holiday concert at the Triad Theater on Sunday December 11th and Monday December 12th, 2011.
Now in its fifth year, the show has become one of NYC’s most beloved holiday treats. Reichard, along with a zany group of carolers and some special guests, will take listeners on a joyful musical journey from Christmases past to Christmas future and will feature classic holiday hits from Bing Crosby, Dean Martin, Elvis, John Denver and more.
Backed by an 8-piece band, the show also stars special guest Donna Vivino of Broadway’s WICKED and features Emily Bottorff, Paul Louis Lessard and Beth Kuhn, all fellow graduates of Reichard’s alma mater, the University of Michigan. Musical director is Bryan Perri, currently conducting WICKED on Broadway.
Daniel Reichard rose to Broadway stardom when he received a Drama Desk nomination for his portrayal of Bob Gaudio in the Original Cast of JERSEY BOYS and went on to play the title role in New York City Opera’s production of CANDIDE. Reichard now stars in THE MIDTOWN MEN, the musical group he founded with JERSEY BOYS co stars Christian Hoff, Michael Longoria and J. Robert Spencer. The group recently released their first CD, The Midtown Men–Sixties Hits, and are currently on a 70-date national tour.
In keeping with the true spirit of giving, all proceeds from “Daniel Reichard’s Christmas Present” will benefit an important local charity, Chemo Comfort. Founded in 2005 by a breast cancer survivor, Chemo Comfort provides cancer patients kits with products to help them manage the many side effects of chemotherapy. In 2007 the group received nation attention when Robin Roberts of Good Morning America named the Chemo Comfort Kit one of three favorite things she received after starting her cancer treatments. www.chemocomfort.org
