Ellen Travolta and Abbey Crawford preview their upcoming Christmas show

Cabaret singer Abbey Crawford and TV icon Ellen Travolta joined E.J. Iannelli in the KPBX studio to preview their upcoming holiday show, The Best of Christmas, which opens at the Coeur d’Alene Resort in Idaho on November 25.

The Best of Christmas collects what Travolta describes as "highlights" of her previous annual holiday performances from the past ten years, including letters, stories, songs and skits. This year's show will also feature new material.

Along with Crawford, Travolta will be accompanied onstage by her sister Margaret, her daughter Molly Allen, singer Mark Cotter, pianist Jenny Shotwell and bassist Eugene Jablonski. Troy Nickerson is returning to direct this year's production.

The Best of Christmas runs from November 25 through December 18 at the Coeur d’Alene Resort. To reserve tickets or view the accommodation packages that are on offer, visit the CDA Christmas Show website.

E.J. Iannelli is Spokane Public Radio's Arts and Music Director
