Next week (January 13), Chris returns to New York's Laurie Beechman Theatre for the one-night-only debut of his new solo show, Piano Bar Pest. He will work his way through the best Broadway ballads, comedy tunes, and familiar sing-alongs that make the piano bar the natural extension of Chris' need for attention. Here he is doing Chita's big song from The Visit.

BroadwayBox asked the self-proclaimed “Kander Kid” to curate the first Friday playlist of 2017 with 17 of his favorite Kander & Ebb songs.

Check out Chris Newcomer in Piano Bar Pest at the Laurie Beechman on January 13.
