With a voice that The New York Times describes as a "singularly thunderous baritone," Broadway leading man Brian Stokes Mitchell joins the NSO Pops for an evening of holiday favorites. Equally comfortable as a dancer and a singer, he's an in-demand presence on the Great White Way, with critically acclaimed performances in Man of La Mancha, Kiss Me Kate, Ragtime, Kiss of the Spider Woman, Jelly's Last Jam, Sweeney Todd and, most recently, Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown. He's even had two cameo appearances on the hit TV show Glee, and last year released a CD of Broadway hits entitled Simply Broadway. Steven Reineke conducts the orchestra as Stokes puts his jazzy spin on all the holiday classics. Word on the street is that Jolly ol' St. Nick might even make an appearance at this show! Learn More

Opening with Ravel's Bolero was truly the best moment of the night. The following announcement that Storm Large and Ari Shapiro would be singing show tunes made we want to head to the exit. They did their best - and it turned out fun. How could it not have been announced that the lead singer China would not be present?
Quotes & Highlights
- Check out Pink Martini's official website.
If the United Nations had a house band in 1962, Pink Martini would be that band. One minute you're in a samba parade in Rio de Janeiro, the next you're in a palazzo in Naples. Together again with the NSO Pops, the group that Variety calls "impressive...charming and elegant" picks up where they left off after their crowd-pleasing 2008 performances. Expect a cool vibe with a hint of a wild side—just as their name implies—when Pink Martini returns to continue their musical travelogue.
