Michael Feinstein: Swingin’ With The Season
December 23 - 30, 2018
Oh the weather outside may be frightful, but inside Broadway’s Living Room it will be delightful as Michael Feinstein returns to his New York home this December with a brand new swingin’ show of sophisticated Christmas classics and fireside favorites in Swingin’ With The Season.
With the spirit of the season as well as Manhattan’s Golden Age, walk with Feinstein through a winter wonderland of sparkling swing standards and holiday favorites. Songs will include “White Christmas” and “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas,” plus classic, American Songbook standards, from Gershwin to Cole Porter, to celebrate the magic of Christmastime. Warm up with a signature Feinstein’s/54 Below Christmas cocktail and let this bright and colorful show brings you more than just a cup of cheer.
Michael Feinstein, Ambassador of the Great American Songbook, has built a dazzling career over the last three decades bringing the music of the Great American songbook to the world. From recordings that have earned him five Grammy Award nominations to his Emmy nominated PBS-TV specials, his acclaimed NPR series and concerts spanning the globe. His work as an educator and archivist define Feinstein as one of the most important musical forces of our time.
The New York Times hailed Michael’s show “as much a Christmas season ritual as catching the Rockettes at Radio City Music Hall or visiting the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree.”
