Donny & Marie Osmond play final performance
Donny & Marie - A Broadway Christmas, a new holiday production starring sibling entertainers Donny Osmond and Marie Osmond, plays its final performance on 2 Jan 2011, having played 25 performances.
The show began performances at the Marriott Marquis Theatre on 9 Dec 2010 for a limited 12 week run that was originally scheduled to end on 30 Dec 2010.
In the holiday tradition of the "Osmond Family Christmas" television specials, Donny & Marie invite you and your family to join them to celebrate the joy of the season in true Osmond fashion, as the pair share a Broadway stage for the first time.
Donny Osmond began his career in entertainment at the age of 5, and by 13 had already collected 18 gold records, eventually earning a grand total of 33 throughout his career, with sales of over 80 million albums. He recently released "Love Songs of the 70s", which shipped gold in the UK, and is currently working on his 60th album with producer Todd Rundgren. He starred in Andrew Lloyd Weber's Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat for a record breaking 6 year run of 2000 performances. During his 40+ year career, Donny has been a singer, actor, triple threat television series host (talk show, game show, variety show), best-selling author, commercial spokesman, motivational speaker, and even a race car driver.
Marie Osmond is returning to Broadway as she celebrates five decades in entertainment. Osmond's Broadway debut in 1997 as 'Anna' in 'The King and I' earned her critical praise, following a hugely successful national and international tour as Maria in The Sound of Music (1994-1997). She first appeared on "The Andy Williams Show" at age 3, going on to star on the award winning "Donny and Marie" musical-variety series at age 15, which ran for four seasons, guest-starred the biggest names in entertainment, and was dubbed into 17 languages. The "Donny & Marie" talk show (1998-2000) received Emmy nominations for the popular hosts. Along with many other TV appearances, Ms. Osmond starred in the TV movies "Gift of Love," "Side by Side," and "I Married Wyatt Earp." This is the first time the duo has performed live on stage in over 28 years.
