New York Times
After nearly a decade apart, Ruben Studdard and Clay Aiken reunited for three weeks LIVE ON BROADWAY - to celebrate the 15th Anniversary of their record-setting “American Idol” finale.
A classic evening of songs and sketches harkening back to the days of Dean Martin, Andy Williams, and Carol Burnett, Ruben and Clay crooned, quipped, and created a magical setting that was perfect for those yuletide yearnings. Audiences enjoyed an evening of holiday classics as they unwrapped some of their old time favorites, some newfound gems—and even a few old grudges. A must see miracle on 45th Street, this Broadway Christmas Celebration was full of theatrics, music, and laughter.
"Directed by Jonathan Tessero the tone is set with a very funny opening sequence."
"Under Jonathan Tessero’s expert direction
the marvelous company sing, dance and appear in a skillful assembly of retro genre conceits linked by old-time humor with dashes of emotion.
Ruben & Clay’s Christmas Show is a prime opportunity for those seeking a merry diversion at the most wonderful time of the year."
