Matt Pinfield's Holiday Extravaganza with George Gerkie

WRXP, NYC

NEW YORK, Nov. 9 – Tony-award winning director Chase McHuan’s much-anticipated stage show, Ebenezer Scrooge Presents: Matt Pinfield’s Holiday Extravaganza, is undoubtedly this winter’s most coveted ticket. The one night only event, scheduled for New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom on December 2nd, sold out in a matter of minutes, leaving many would-be concert goers on an unexpected scavenger hunt for Yuletide cheer.

With second-hand tickets selling in upwards of $6000 on Craigslist, a popular classifieds-listing site, most can’t justify, or for that matter, afford, to dish out such a large sum of cash, especially in today’s economy. Erin Kent, a single mother of three, is one of those enraged by the price gouging. With her youngest child, Robert, crying by her side, Erin makes no attempt to hide her feelings: “I find it absolutely disgusting that there are individuals out there who show no regard to the message of selflessness intended by [Ebenezer Scrooge Presents: Matt Pinfield’s Holiday Extravaganza]. Fueled by greed, these scoundrels are only out for their own financial gain. Scrooge would be sick. I know I am.”

After days of widespread protesting, the public finally received the news they’d been waiting for. In a televised address, Chase McHuan announced a second installment of Matt Pinfield’s Holiday Extravaganza, stating he felt a sense of "duty" to "re-affirm the good in this world.” McHuan also urged those viewing to “let go of any contempt,” and to win over those lacking in spirit “one smile at a time.”

While Matt Pinfield and Leslie Fram will reprise their roles as Ebenezer Scrooge and Tiny Tim, respectively, part two of Matt Pinfield’s Holiday Extravaganza will see a change in the musical line-up, featuring the melodies of David Gray, Pete Yorn, and Company of Thieves.

The event is taking place Sunday, December 6th, at Manhattan Center’s Hammerstein Ballroom.

* JUST ADDED! Matt Pinfield sings with The Spring Standards and Vincent D'Onofrio brings his country singing sensation George 'Geronimo' Jerky!

Playing Goren for a long period has obviously made Vincent value sticking with a character.

Just as long as he brings Georgie Boy over here to us Brits.

Is anyone going to this?? The rest of this crap seems stupid, not George Gerkie obvi! What exactly is this with the Scrooge and Tiny Tim? Someone, please explain!!! I loved GGG at Joe's Pub, but don't wanna go to this if its gonna be stupid..I can't really stand Matt and Leslie as hosts..

Labs_n_SD said...

I'm going. It's a concert, the rest I don't know. But since I'd be spending the night sitting in a hotel room anyway - what the heck :-)

When is George coming to LA?!?

Brie said...

Where's Bunny?? Hey Bunny, are you going? I think as much as it kills me, I'm going to skip this performance. Is Pete Yorn even gonna be there, it says "melodies from Pete Yorn.." Guess I will call!

Labs_n_SD said...

Brie (or anyone else) if you decide you want to go - I think I've got a couple extra tickets. Friends are looking out for me a little too well!

Bunny said...

BRIE: GOING!
Live music is always good music for me. I love live music.

On the radio this morning they just said that the three main performers would be doing "a set" and George Gerkie would do a song between sets and Vincent would introduce Matt's song.
