Artists Lounge Live presents SWINGING ON A STAR, A SALUTE TO BING CROSBY AND THE ANDREWS SISTERS starring Broadway’s Jared Bradshaw on Tuesday, December 17, at Marriott Theatre, 10 Marriott Drive, Lincolnshire, IL 60069.
Tis the season to be jolly as Broadway baritone Jared Bradshaw celebrates Bing Crosby, the crooner who immortalized the most famous secular Christmas song of all time – “White Christmas.” Bradshaw is a veteran of the Great White Way, appearing in JERSEY BOYS and CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY. Lauded as “immensely talented” by Associated Press, Bradshaw is an entertainer possessing the easy charm of a bygone era. Also featuring a trio of talented dolls singing the infectious harmonies of the Andrews Sisters, this is one humdinger of a good time! Traditional favorites include “Jingle Bells,” "Chattanooga Choo-Choo," "Mele Kalikimaka," and of course, “White Christmas.” Presented by Artists Lounge Live.
