BETWEEN BROADWAY VARIETY HOUR Welcomes Holli' Conway, The Satin Dollz And More

The Between Broadway Variety Hour is found at the intersection of the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, the Kelly Clarkson Show, and the Carol Burnett Show. Starting between the end of Broadway matinees and ending before Broadway evening performances, in the heart of the theater district, Between Broadway lets you laugh your way through dinner and easily make a 1 show day into a 2 or even 3 show day. Featuring performers from current Broadway and Off Broadway shows, along with some fun surprises, Between Broadway is a great way to spend your early Saturday evening!

Created by the same team as Just Between the All of Us, a new semi-scripted, semi-improvised musical, creators Sarah Ziegler Blair and David Christensen are excited to bring these pieces to life this December.

Host Sarah Ziegler Blair said, "I am beyond pumped to host the "Between Broadway Variety Hour:" a cross between cabaret and talk show, a fun romp between matinee and evening, and conveniently located between 8th and 9th!"

"I love a two show day and we wanted to create a way to make a two (or even three) show day a little bit easier and a lot of fun.", says producer Bill DeSimone, "Putting up the show at Don't Tell Mama right in the heart of theater district makes it a breeze."
