If one is good and two are better and three are best, then four must be spectacular.  In this case, the four are four gals, a quintet of talent that will trumpet in the holiday spirit in a great big way.  "4 Girls 4: A Christmas Together" is guaranteed to have your red, green and gold lights twinkling and set your holiday season ablaze with brightness.

The Bushnell Center for the Performing Arts in Hartford will be sparkling in splendor for one night only: Monday, December 1 at 8 p.m. at the Belding Theater, as a fundraiser for Hartford TheaterWorks. As girls go, these ladies are stars spectacular from movies, television, records and Broadway.  You're invited to be up close and personal, fun and flirty, with Andrea McArdle of "Annie" fame who grew up to star in "Beauty and the Beast" and "Starlight Express." 

Maureen McGovern has a collection of Grammy Awards to her credit, a #1 Gold record for "The Morning After" and a Drama-Desk nomination for "Little Women,"  You'll recognize Donna McKechnie for her performances lighting up the stage in "Company" and "State Fair" as well as her TONY winning role in "A Chorus Line."  Last but certainly not least is Faith Prince who was a dynamo as Miss Hannigan in "Annie" on Broadway, a TONY winner for "Guys and Dolls" as well as TV's "Drop Dead Diva" and "Bells Are Ringing."

These gals have the musical goods and they will deliver them right to your front row seat.  You'll hit the holiday jackpot as they belt out the tunes they made famous from the shows that made them stars.  These leading ladies will start your holiday season off with a bang and a rat-a-tat-tat and a hoopla of happiness.

Tunes you might hear from their magical jukebox of hits could include "Strike Up the Band," "Broadway Baby," "The Morning After," "Miss Adelaide's Lament," "It's Marvelous," "Together" and "A Tisket A Tasket." Individually or all together, these women will sing and schmooze, share a laugh and a memory and royally entertain.  Musical director John McDaniel will lead this festive parade of hits.

For tickets ($55-100), call 860-527-7838.  The performance will take place at the Bushnell, 166 Capitol Avenue, Hartford.  The $100 tickets will include a post-performance party with the stars, a Meet and Greet!  $50 of each ticket will benefit the Hartford TheaterWorks Annual Fund.

Ring those bells for these four leading ladies of Broadway as they usher in and celebrate the holidays in regal style.
