Christine’s show mixes standards from her vast repertoire, ranging from the poignant “Another Winter in Summer Town” from the Broadway musical Grey Gardens, to the rollicking Sophie Tucker number “You Can’t Deep Freeze a Red Hot Mama.”  Ebersole has enchanted audiences throughout her performing career on the Broadway stage, in television series and specials, films, concert appearances, and recordings.  Her many accolades include two Tony Awards for her performances as “Edith Beale” and “Little Edie Beale” in the Broadway musical Grey Gardens, and as “Dorothy Brock” in the smash hit revival of 42nd Street.  Other memorable stage performances include roles in Steel Magnolias, On the Twentieth Century, Oklahoma, Dinner at Eight (Tony and Outer Critics Circle nominations), The Best Man, and the recent revival of Noel Coward’s Blithe Spirit. She has starred in five City Center Encores! Productions, most recently receiving praise for her starring role as “Margo Channing” in Applause.

In concert, Christine Ebersole has appeared in numerous halls throughout the country.  Most recently, she performed in the concert version of the opera The Grapes of Wrath at Carnegie Hall. Ebersole participated in the Opening Night Gala of Carnegie Hall’s 118th Season and has also appeared with the San Francisco Symphony in its tribute to Leonard Bernstein.  After making her debut with the Boston Pops three years ago, she returned to Boston’s Symphony Hall and Tanglewood to star as “Desiree Armfeldt” in a concert version of A Little Night Music with the Boston Pops.  In televised concerts, she has had star turns in Ira Gershwin at 100: A Celebration at Carnegie Hall and The Rodgers & Hart Story: Thou Swell, Thou Witty. In December 2010, she performed for the second time on the Kennedy Center Honors.
