Ray DeForest Announces THE DORIS DEAR CHRISTMAS SPECIAL Celebrating her third year of holiday magic, drag artist Doris Dear, known as "America's Perfect Housewife", announces the all new "Doris Dear Christmas Special". This year's show will be held once again at The Triad Theater on 72nd street in NYC this December 19, 20 and 21st at 7pm! The Doris Dear Christmas Special has quickly become a holiday tradition in NYC.

Each year Doris Dear invites guests into her "rumpus room" full of holiday cheer where they share stories, traditions and songs of the season. From new takes on holiday classic songs to exciting original compositions, this show always brings smiles, laughter and cheers! This year Doris has invited award winning guests Lisa Yeager and that fab girl group "Those Girls", along with director and award winning singer Lina Koutrakos, musical director and songwriter Rick Jensen and bass player Steve Doyle, who last year brought the house down with his rendition of "Blue Christmas"! Doris Dear is known for her comedy and story telling, and always surprises everyone with her amazing vocal stylings.

The show is a highly produced holiday extravaganza, so grab a whiskey sour and pull up a seat for this yearly holiday celebration and we guarantee you will leave with a smile on your face and a song in your heart. Cabaret Scenes said last year - "She was the perfect hostess for this delicious Christmas party.", and Downtown Magazine called it "...a must add to your holiday list".

The show is written and performed by Dramatist Guild member and SAG/AFTRA National LGBT Board Member Ray DeForest and inspired by the great musical TV specials that were the standard of TV watching in the 50's, 60's and 70's!
