Video Interview with George Krissa: Making Music with The Holiday SitterSep 06, 2023
When it was announced that Hallmark was going to be showing its first ever LGBTQ+ lead romcom, The Holiday Sitter, co-starring Jonathan Bennett, I was so excited!
I have been a fan of Jonathan's since his days on ABC's All My Children.
Through this movie, I got introduced to George Krissa, a Toronto based Film, TV & Theatre actor. I adored his performance in The Holiday Sitter.
When I heard that George was coming to New York City to make his cabaret debut, I just had to get an interview with him.
In this interview, George answered my call to reveal:
- Creating his upcoming cabaret show
- Singing showtunes with Jonathan Bennett
- His love for potato chips
- His affection for Country Music
- Life on the Prairie
- So much more
George will make his New York City cabaret debut at Chelsea Table & Stage on September 23, 2023.
