Tis the season to be jolly, as Broadway baritone Jared Bradshaw celebrates American icon Bing Crosby performing A Bing Crosby Christmas at The George Theater. A mainstay of the “Great White Way,” Bradshaw appeared in multiple roles in Jersey Boys and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. As a crooner and storyteller, Bradshaw exudes the timeless warmth Crosby fans adore.
Bradshaw was in Jersey Boys on Broadway with now A.D. Players at The George Executive Director Jake Speck, and producer of A Bing Crosby Christmas, Michael Ingersoll. There is something about working in theater that creates a familial type bond. Once you have worked on a show together, you are connected. Try working on a show together for years. Now they are combining forces to bring this holiday treat to Houston. The Andrew Sisters will be played by 3 talented Houston singers, Emily Speck, Brooke Wilson and Kelley Peters.
Appearing in Houston for only 2 nights at The George Theater, December 10 and 11, this show is sure to be a crowd pleaser. Executive Director Jake Speck said “It’s so much fun to have the chance to bring these friends and incredible musicians to Houston. I am so proud of The George Theater and I love getting to show it off to my colleagues, and I love getting to introduce them to Houston. The city is in for a treat.”
A Bing Crosby Christmas will play on the set of It’s A Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play that is running at A.D. Players at The George for the holiday season. Interim Artistic Director Kevin Dean is excited about having the show on their stage. He said “It’s a perfect fit to place Bing Crosby on this 1940’s radio station. I think it is going to add a fun quality to the show and truly highlight the musicians and the nostalgia of the music.”
