MURRAY HILL, “the hardest working middle-aged man in show business”, gives the gift of holiday entertainment to New York City with his
legendary Yuletide tradition: A Murray Little Christmas at LPR Saturday night, December 13th.
Everyone is invited as Murray re-creates one of his infamous holiday cocktail parties, live on stage. The show will be a cozy, chestnut warming, homey affair direct from his bachelor pad living room (one large enough to accommodate 10 merry musicians, 6 crooning carolers, 3 strutting Santa showgirls, two singing stars, and one showbiz legend named Murray Hill). A Murray Little Christmas is a cocktail-style variety show packed with silver bells and holiday hi-balls.
The holidays just wouldn’t be the same without Murray’s special blend of comedy, music and heartfelt hi-jinks. Expect an evening of hilarious and wacky skits with the cast, a sleigh full of cheesy holiday songs, dazzling production numbers that will knock the stockings off the mantle, red hot burlesque from the ladies, and Murray as the little drummer boy. Murray also promises several tender moments when he sings his signature “Have Yourself a Murray Little Christmas” (tissues and ear plugs will be available to the audience upon request). And what has become a Murray holiday show tradition, Santa Claus (who happens to look a lot like you know who) will be making a surprise guest appearance encouraging females in the audience to sit on his lap and whisper in his ear.
It’s the liveliest Christmas cocktail party of the season and everyone is guaranteed to have a gay old time!

Perle Noire’s unique and dynamic style has earned her a spot with Dita Von Teese’s Strip Strip Hooray Tour and numerous awards from the Burlesque Hall of Fame Miss Exotic World Competition which include, Best Debut Performer (2008), 2nd Runner-Up Overall Performance (2009) and Most Dazzling Performer (2012). Perle was honored yet again by performing her signature moves at the prestigious, Sydney Opera House with the 5 star production, Velvet.

Mr. Gorgeous . . . 6 feet 5 inches of dorky ambition.
Fusing Boylesque, physical comedy, and circus, Gorgeous is a pure spectacle of foolishness and mayhem in the best possible sense. A shy guy, in a big body, Gorgeous works the stage with a timid confidence and strives to entertain with his geeky charm.
Mr. Gorgeous showcases a variety of acts ranging from a battle with his “catch of the day” . . . a three foot long largemouth bass that strips and soaks, to his interpretation of classic burlesque with a Gorgeous twist.
