HOLLYWOOD—Kathryn Crosby performed this show last year to sold out crowds at Feinstein’s at the prestigious Regency Hotel in New York, at the Friars Club in Beverly Hills and many other venues across the country.
In addition to numerous hit songs and stories, the show includes a multi-media presentation with film clips that follow the lives of Kathryn and Bing from their Las Vegas wedding as well as footage of Bing and Bob Hope on the golf course, and home movies of Bing welcoming his first daughter Mary. The show contains a celebration of Holiday music, which will of course include Bing’s most famous hit “White Christmas.”
