Each December, Norm Lewis’ festive sold-out shows help ring in the season and audiences travel from across the globe to join in the hottest party in town. This year, we bring Norm and his holiday cheer direct from Broadway’s Living Room into your home. Norm will be joined by his swingin’ band: Musical Director Joseph Joubert on keyboards, George Farmer on upright and electric bass, and Perry Cavari on drums and percussion. He and the boys will perform material from the past shows, songs from The NORM LEWIS Christmas Album and some new songs he’s excited to debut for you as he reflects on 2020.
Directed by Richard Jay-Alexander and Executive Produced by The Katz Company, the show will feature special guests: the extraordinary Sierra Boggess and Norm’s cousin, the renowned Pastor Bobby Lewis, as well as a few surprises. So, cozy up with your favorite libations and snacks and let Norm bring you real joy in a year when we all need to have our spirits lifted! This curated concert will feature cinematic, four-camera HD shoots to bring the glamour and intimacy of Broadway’s Living Room directly to in-home screens. Designed and directed especially for streaming by an award-winning production team, the audio and video reflect a high standard of presentation that have made evenings at Feinstein's/54 Below New York's most unique cabaret experiences.
