Some familiar Broadway faces will usher in the holiday season as part of the revamped Radio City Christmas Spectacular this year. Tony nominee De'Adre Aziza, Natalie Venetia Belcon and Adrienne Muller will appear alongside the Radio City Rockettes when the show begins performances on November 11 at Radio City Music Hall. The holiday engagement runs through January 2, 2012.
The three actresses will rotate in the role of a mother who learns the true spirit of Christmas. Aziza is a Tony nominee for Passing Strange. She has also appeared on Broadway in Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown. Belcon's Broadway credits include Avenue Q and Rent. Muller toured nationally with The Lion King and Mamma Mia!
The 2011 installment of The Radio City Christmas Spectacular features six new scenes including a 3-D video-gamed themed number where the Rockettes go head to head with a Christmas villain in front of the world's largest LED screen.
