To celebrate the 10th anniversary of his annual holiday show, Daniel Reichard, who created the role of Bob Gaudio in the Tony-winning musical Jersey Boys, performs the festive evening at Lincoln Center to benefit the Lincoln Center Corporate Fund.
Daniel Reichard: Christmas at Lincoln Center is presented December 10–11 in the Kaplan Penthouse at Lincoln Center.
Attendees can expect Christmas classics, Hanukkah favorites, and standards from the Great American Songbook. Joanna A. Jones, currently portraying Peggy Schuyler/Maria Reynolds in Hamilton, joins Reichard and his nine-piece chamber band as a special guest star. Actor and comic Kristine Zbornik, whom Reichard played opposite in Forbidden Broadway, is part of the evening's program.
“Creating this show over the past decade has been wildly rewarding to my life as an entertainer,” Reichard said in an earlier statement. “This year’s edition will be a collection of new numbers and my ‘greatest hits’ from previous performances of the show. I don’t think I’ve ever been so excited to do a concert as I am to do this show.”
Jesse Vargas serves as musical director and orchestrator with direction by Patrick McCollum.
Reichard followed Jersey Boys with a critically acclaimed performance as Candide in Leonard Bernstein’s Candide at the New York City Opera. He made his New York City debut in Forbidden Broadway: 20th Anniversary Celebration and also played Keith Haring in Radiant Baby at Joe Papp’s Public Theater. Reichard has also toured concert halls across North America with fellow Jersey Boys alumnae in the successful vocal group The Midtown Men.
The Lincoln Center Corporate Fund provides support for Lincoln Center’s resident arts organizations, allowing corporate donors to benefit ten world-renowned institutions.
Christmas at Lincoln Center will offer the opportunity for a wine reception and photo op before both performances for a premium ticket price. Show time December 10 is 7 PM with a 6 PM VIP reception; December 11 has a VIP reception at 7 PM with an 8 PM performance.
There is a $50 regular admission charge and an $80 VIP admission.
