Lesli Margherita, Mario Cantone and More to Join Michael Longoria's Christmas Concert at The Green Room 42

Michael Longoria will sing us home for the holidays with a Christmas concert on Tuesday, December 17 at 9:30pm at The Green Room 42 in New York City. The one night only concert is produced by Longoria and Taylor James of 42West PR as a benefit for the students of Opening Act, an organization that seeks to level the playing field for students by specifically partnering with NYC schools that have lower than average graduation rates (as few as 33% of students graduating in four years) and an evident lack of theater programming. For 20 years Opening Act has given high school students opportunities to develop leadership community and commitment through its innovative, high quality, free, after-school theater program. The evening will feature special guest stars; Tony award nominee Charl Brown (Motown: The Musical), Olivier award winner Lesli Margherita (Matilda The Musical), Mario Cantone (Sex and the City), Daniel Reichard (Jersey Boys) and Jaime Cepero (Smash). Michael Longoria's Holiday Hop will feature songs from Longoria's Christmas album, Merry Christmas Darling, as well as songs from his albums: Like They Do In The Movies and Broadway Brick By Brick.

"Free after school theater programs saved my life as a teen who wouldn't have had exposure to the arts otherwise. Theater taught me to dream big and gave me a sense of purpose whenever I was a part of the ensemble of a play or musical. With my one night only holiday concert, I am thrilled to be on the other side of it, working with Opening Act to bring free theater programs to underserved New York City public schools. I gathered some of my most talented friends from Broadway and television to join me in singing a concert to raise money for these very deserving students."

-Michael Longoria
