"'O Holy Night' has always stirred in me," Block explains. "I have had the privilege to perform this hymn in many venues, from my hometown church to Carnegie Hall with the New York Pops, and everywhere in between. But this intimate arrangement allowed me to feel the song more than I ever had. And when a song allows you to feel the words, the story, the instrumentation, it becomes more of a prayer than a song."

Stephanie J. Block has established herself as one of the most relevant and versatile voices in contemporary musical theatre. She most recently won the 2019 Tony Award for "Best Leading Actress in a Musical," as well as winning the Drama Desk and Outer Critics Award for her star turn in The Cher Show.

In 2013 she was recognized with both the Drama Desk and Tony Award nomination(s) for "Best Leading Actress in a Musical" for her portrayal of Alice Nutting/ Edwin Drood in The Roundabout Theater's production of The Mystery of Edwin Drood. Other Broadway credits include Reno Sweeney in the 2011 Tony Award-winning revival of Anything Goes and 9 to 5: The Musical, for which she earned a Drama Desk nomination. She created the roles of Grace O'Malley in The Pirate Queen and Liza Minnelli in The Boy from Oz (opposite Hugh Jackman). Ms. Block is known for her portrayal as Elphaba in the Broadway company of Wicked, as well as originating the role in the First National Tour, for which she won the Helen Hayes Award for "Outstanding Actress in a Musical."
