A hundred years ago, New York City was in the grips of a global pandemic, but the Ziegfeld Follies soldiered on, featuring the stars of the day, including WC Fields, Will Rogers and Fanny Brice. While we’re unable to be together in person this holiday season, we want to honor this tradition and have the show go on—virtually.
On December 16th at 7pm EST, New York Theatre Workshop will host a holiday variety show, featuring some of our theatre community’s brightest. The evening will include festive holiday classics, dance—both nice and naughty!—and some Follies fun to bring us all together for some laughs this season.
Lean into the nostalgia and join us for a zany evening featuring:
Annaleigh Ashford · Nabiyah Be · Addalie Burns & Luke Hawkins · Brandy Clark · Marshall L. Davis, Jr. · Jake Dupree · Bridget Everett · Lisa Stephen Friday · The Lazours · Peppermint · Gian Perez · Martha Redbone & Aaron Whitby · Daphne Rubin-Vega · Basil Twist & Julie Atlas Muz · Michael Urie · Bruce Vilanch · More Zmin · Michael Cerveris, Kimberly Kaye & Loose Cattle · Kinder HSPVA’s Mariachi Los Pasajeros
The evening is written by NYTW Tow Playwright-in-Residence Victor I. Cazares and directed by Kevin Cahoon.
