Christmas in Our Hearts: Holidazzle Act II Benefit CD | Alexandra Bonifield

I can out-Scrooge just about anyone with bah humbug cynicism as THAT end-of-year season, replete with commercial hype, gluttony and conspicuous consumption, draws near. But today I stepped through a portal ringed with holly sprigs, mistletoe and pine bough I haven’t walked through in a long, long time. I’ve been resting on the sofa, listening to an advance copy of Holidazzle Act II by DFW Actors Give Back, asked to review it. I find myself utterly charmed right out of my usual jaded, pre-Christmas blues. It’s a real winner, start to finish, a love song from regional actors to the community. Polished production values and harmonies abound. It’s fun and classic and hip and bluesy and traditional and jazzy and naughty and introspective and full of wonder and wacky and reverent and irreverent…with a sexy Santa voice, too!
