"Yuletide Celebration"

December 2, 2009

Dec. 4-23
Hilbert Circle Theatre

Maureen McGovern, the hostess of this year’s “Yuletide Celebration,” is no stranger to Hilbert Circle Theatre, having joined the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra there earlier in the season for a pops concert.

Best known for her pop hits “The Morning After,” “We May Never Love Like This Again,” and “Can You Read My Mind” (featured in, respectively, “The Poseidon Adventure,” “The Towering Inferno,” and “Superman,”) McGovern evolved into a well-respected cabaret artist with a string of Great-American-Songbook recordings, high-profile nightclub gigs and Broadway appearances. 

Like Santa’s pouch, “Yuletide Celebration” is always a very mixed bag. Joining McGovern in this annual mix of the sacred and the playful will be a Liberace impersonator, a dog act, and the Yuletide debut of the ISO’s new Wurlitzer pipe organ. Details here.
