Bay Street Theater in Sag Harbor is pleased to announce the virtual holiday concert, “Season For Joy,” starring Tony Award-nominee Melissa Errico. The concert premieres online Thursday, December 10, at 8 p.m. This delicious performance brings the joy and endearing spirit of the holidays directly to the living room, with performances of favorite holiday classics blended seamlessly with engaging storytelling.

“Season For Joy” brings Errico, star of Broadway’s “White Christmas,” to the Bay Street stage, where she will deliver an unforgettable evening of holiday songs that will be as joyful and diverse as it is touching and emotional. Enjoy all from the safe comfort of home. Accompanied by acclaimed jazz pianist Tedd Firth, Errico will greet the season by singing and swinging her way through holiday classics, Christmas favorites and great American standards.

With the inimitable storyteller style that has made her a much loved performer, Errico will also share a few tales throughout the evening, including explaining why the greatest Christmas songs are always recorded in mid-July, how most have been written by American Jewish songwriters, and how the winter holidays continue to unite us all. With “Season For Joy,” Errico will bring a December concert right into your living room and bring joy to the entire family as we embrace the beauty of the holidays, even if from afar.

“The Maria Callas of American musical theater,” as Opera News has called her, Errico is an actress, singer and author who contributes regularly to The New York Times. She has a special connection to Bay Street Theater, where she played Betty Comden in “Make Someone Happy,” the bio musical about the lives of Comden and Green; and played Kate in “Kiss Me Kate.” Earlier this year, she appeared as a special guest performer in the theater’s 29th annual virtual “Starry Night Gala Telethon.”

First known for her starring roles on Broadway, including in “My Fair Lady,” “High Society” and “Les Misérables,” her latest album is “Sondheim Sublime.” Television audiences know her for her featured roles on “The Knick” and “Billions.”

Errico has been keeping busy through these difficult months by offering multiple live-streams and conversations (many focused on Sondheim), teaching master classes for students across the country, and producing an at-home cooking show, “The Honest Cook,” on Instagram, which she chronicled in an essay for Variety magazine.

Tickets for “Season For Joy,” on December 10 are $20 and can be purchased via baystreet.org.
