On September 11, host Julio Martinez welcomes award-winning musical theater star, Jason Graae, discussing the 10th Anniverary Kritzerland Show, a live all-star cabaret concert, streaming for free on Facebook and YouTube.

The monthly Kritzerland shows, produced and hosted by Bruce Kimmel, co-produced by Doug Haverty, debuted in September of 2010 at the Gardenia in Hollywood, moved to Vitello's, then Upstairs at the Federal Bar and back to the Feinstein's at Vitello's. Some shows included special guest stars, but it was usually a different cast each month. Since the pandemic, the shows have been virtual, presented on both Facebook and Youtube. For its 10th Anniversary Show, Kimmel and Haverty have assembled an all-star cast, including Daniel Thomas Bellusci, Jason Graae, Peyton Kirkner, Beth Malone, Pamela Myers, Kerry O'Malley, Hartley Powers, Sami Staitman, Adrienne Stiefel, Robert Yacko and very special guest, the legendary Petula Clark. Airs Sunday, Sep 13 at 5:00 (PST). The live concert, with musical direction by Richard Allen and technical expertise by Hartley Powers, streams for free on Facebook and YouTube.
