A Virtual Christmas Vacation with the Griswold’s: An Evening with Chevy Chase & Beverly D’Angelo

Light up your holidays and join Christmas’ favorite couple, Ellen and Clark Griswold for this virtual salute to the holiday classic, National Lampoon’s Christmas vacation. Chevy Chase (Clark) and Beverly D’Angelo (Ellen) lead audiences through this live event as they share fan-favorite clips from the movie, reveal their favorite memories from the making of the Vacation franchise and answer your questions in a live audience Q & A.

An original member of NBC’s Saturday Night Live, Chevy Chase was the trailblazer who turned SNL success into Hollywood mega-stardom. The movies Caddyshack, National Lampoon’s Vacation, Fletch, and Three Amigos all contributed to making Chevy Chase a world-wide household name.

Perhaps best known for her portrayal of Ellen Griswold in the National Lampoon’s Vacation franchise, actress-singer Beverly D’Angelo has had an accomplished career spanning over four decades. Her acting resume includes roles in over 60 films and appearances in some of pop-cultures most celebrated television series including The Simpsons, Law & Order: SVU and Entourage.

Fans can expect the unexpected as these legends share a no-holds-barred trip down memory lane and unveil the behind-the-scenes secrets of the making of a blockbuster film franchise.

Add a new twist to your holiday tradition—gather the family and cozy up on the couch as we stream the Griswolds directly to your living room for this live virtual event that is fun for all ages. Chestnuts and eggnog recommended!

Christmas with Lorie Line

For the first time ever I am returning to the stage and coming to Rochester all by myself for my first solo piano Christmas tour. If you love the spring tour and my intimate private home concerts (and my recent Easter special!), this sentimental and very personal show just might be your all-time favorite as I reinvent myself on the stage one more time in my career. With an all-new set, show and format, this year celebrates my 31st year of touring. And I can’t be more excited!

The Lorie Line holiday show has become an institution for families and Christmas music lovers all over the country. So make plans now to celebrate the true meaning of Christmas in an intimate setting with just me!!!! (and a special featured vocalist) and my concert grand piano which always takes center stage.

Show is appropriate for the entire family (kids ages 4 and up). However, this year due to COVID-19 concerns and restrictions, we are passing on The Twelve Days Of Christmas with the children and Santa. The show will run an hour and a half, with a start time of 7:00 PM and no intermission. Due to the complex relationship with China, a 2020 bell will not be created this year, so bring your favorite bell(s) from years past!

I look forward to celebrating and sharing Christmas with you this year when I return to Rochester!
