The Three Holiday Belles: Leslie Uggams, Christine Andreas, and Marilyn Maye
Described by the New York Times as “a show-biz trouper with sawdust in her blood,” Leslie Uggams was born into showbiz and has no plans to leave. A child actress in the ’50s before the world first heard her sing, Leslie’s non-stop triumphs include her Tony-winning turn as Georgina in Broadway’s Hallelujah, Baby!, an Emmy for her work in Roots, and her current incarnation of Lena Horne in the Broadway-bound Stormy Weather. Christina Andreas, on the other hand, first became the toast of Broadway as Eliza Doolittle in the 20th-anniversary production of My Fair Lady. Soon she was landing Tony nominations for Oklahoma! and On Your Toes, and a Barrymore Award for her turn in Pal Joey. Rounding out the trio is Marilyn Maye, who, according to The Wall Street Journal’s Will Friedwald, “is pretty much every singer you ever wanted to hear: She has the rhythm and musicianship of a great jazz singer, the projection and personality of a heavyweight Broadway diva, and creates the intimate bond with her audiences that we demand from a cabaret artist.” A 76-time guest on The Tonight Show starring Johnny Carson, she has been both an under-the-radar performer and enthusiastically celebrated star for decades. From playing a Kansas City supper club for 11 years to selling out Carnegie Hall, she has used her interpretive skills and showmanship to wrap audiences in her dulcet tones. <p>
As The Three Holiday Belles, these chanteuses ignite the stage together for an evening of unparalleled melody in what producer Bernie Furshpan calls “a real gift to the cabaret and concert lovers of New York.” Individual sets from the starlets give them a chance to feast on their favorite musical numbers, before they band together to belt out holiday melodies with enough power and grace to embarrass even the most confident neighborhood carolers. <p>
