Gosh, apparently I miss all kinds of news when I'm offline for a few days.


Shoshana will be participating in The 2nd Annual Broadway in South Africa concert at The Lion King's Minskoff Theater tomorrow in New York. Tickets are $30 and they have tons of other Broadway performers & an open bar! Visit the above link for tickets & info.

Daniel Reichard and special guests from Broadway ring in the holidays in Gettin' on the Good List, which begins Dec. 12 at the Alvin Ailey Citigroup Theatre.

The original Jersey Boys star leads the Dec. 12, 13 and 14 performances of the evening he co-authored with Mark Noonan and Christopher Spaulding. Peter Gregus directs Gettin' on the Good List, which has musical direction and arrangements by Eric Svejcar (Jacques Brel).

Joining Reichard are Tony winner Karen Ziemba (Curtains, Contact), Tony nominee J. Robert Spencer (Next to Normal, Jersey Boys), Shoshana Bean (Wicked), Tony nominee Marc Kudisch (9 to 5, The Apple Tree), Tituss Burgess (Guys & Dolls, The Little Mermaid), Cass Morgan (Memphis), Nick Adams (A Chorus Line, Guys & Dolls) and Sara Schmidt (Jersey Boys).

According to press notes, Reichard explores "the music, memories, complexities and joys of the Christmas season." He is set to cover songs by Bing Crosby, George Gershwin, Coldplay, Alicia Keys and Paul Williams "as he tries to get himself off this year's Naughty List! Join Daniel, Mrs. Claus, and even Santa himself on a journey to discover why we need Christmas in difficult times like these!"

Daniel Reichard originated the role of Bob Gaudio in the hit musical Jersey Boys at the La Jolla Playhouse, repeating his work for Broadway. Reichard made his New York debut in Forbidden Broadway: 20th Anniversary Celebration and then played Keith Haring in the Public Theater's Radiant Baby. He appeared Off-Broadway in The Thing About Men and in the City Opera presentation of Candide.

Producer Jesse Nager created The Broadway Boys in order to create a new sound for theater and non-theater audiences alike. Mixing elements of pop, jazz, gospel, and funk to reinvent showtunes and classic pop songs, The Broadway Boys have created what has been called, "a symphony of sound."

Shoshana is best known for her roles in Broadway smash hits WICKED and HAIRSPRAY, and is currently starring in the Las Vegas spectacular PEEPSHOW alongside Holly Madison.

Guests can expect to hear Broadway Boys classics such as "Defying Gravity," Possibilities," and "I Got Rhythm" as well as original spins on pop tunes, gospel songs, and holiday standards!

Tickets are $40 for VIP seating and $25 for general admission. To purchase tickets, call (212) 581-3080 or visit http://www.birdlandjazz.com.
