Photo Coverage: Christine Ebersole's 'Winter Wonderland'

Christine Ebersole and applauded pianist Billy Stritch concluded their four-day, sold-out, celebrity-packed "Winter Wonderland" concert at Broadway at Birdland on Saturday, December 8.

Ebersole and Stritch performed a special seasonal showcase entitled "Winter Wonderland," featuring classic holiday & wintertime standards including "White Christmas," "All I Want For Christmas Is You" and Kay Thompson's "The Holiday Season," mixed with more-recent favorites. Additionally, Ebersole debuted songs from her upcoming CD, "Sunday In New York."

Ebersole last graced Broadway stages with her tour-de-force dual-role performance as both 'Little' Edie Beale and Edith Bouvier Beale in the critically-acclaimed musical Grey Gardens, for which she won universal critical raves and the 2007 Tony Award for Best Actress in a Musical. In addition to her reputation as one of the leading ladies of the modern stage, Ebersole has also taken Hollywood by storm, in feature films including classics like Amadeus and Tootsie, and as a cast member of the 1981-82 season of NBC's "Saturday Night Live."

One of the premier pianists and singers on the New York jazz and cabaret scene, Stritch made his Broadway debut in the 2001 Tony-winning revival of 42nd Street and continues to dazzle audiences in nightclubs and concert halls around the world. Stritch is also a gifted composer, who continues a longtime association with Liza Minnelli, as a producer and arranger of her work.

Birdland is located at 315 West 44th Street (between 8th & 9th Aves). Visit www.BirdlandJazz.com; or call Telephone: 212.581.3080.
