Two-time Tony Award Winning Actress Christine Ebersole knows how to entertain whether it’s Broadway, cabaret, television, or  feature films. On Broadway, she has won two Tony Awards for “Lead Actress in a Musical” for “42nd Street” & “Grey Gardens” and was nominated for “Lead Actress in a Play” for “Dinner At Eight.” She made her Broadway debut in “Angel Street” in 1976.

In addition to theatre Christine has delighted audiences on television for over 20 years. During her one year tenure on ABC’s “One Life To Live,” Christine received an Emmy Nomination for her role as “Maxie McDermott.” She also starred on “Saturday Night Live” from 1981-1982.

Her feature film credits include “Amadeus,” “Tootsie,” “Thief of Hearts”, Billy Cosby’s “Ghost Dad,” “Folks!,” “Dead Again,” “My Girl 2,” “Richie Rich,” “Black Sheep,” and ‘Til There Was You.”

As if theatre, television, and movies weren’t enough, Christine also entertains crowds with her sold-out cabaret shows (many times performing with the one and only Billy Stritch, who is also a fellow “Adaumbelle’s Quest” participant). She has performed in such legendary cabaret venues as Birdland, Feinstein’s At The Regency, The Metropolitan Room, and Cinegrill. Her CDs include: “Live at the Cinegrill,” “In Your Dreams,” and “Sunday In New York” (both with Billy Stritich).
