Jason B takes on Gloria Swanson in Christmas with the Crawfords!!

Subtlety. Nuance. FACE.

I’ll be taking on the diva of the silent film Ms. Gloria Swanson in the upcoming camp-fest “Christmas with the Crawfords,” starring downtown legend Joey Arias as Joan Crawford and Project Runway’s Chris March as her darling little daughter Christina (he’s also doing the costumes!!!). And maybe, just maybe, I’ll be playing one of the Andrews Sisters as well.

Tickets are on sale now. More info, as we go into rehearsals, in a couple weeks.
