Friendly "American Idol" rivals Ruben Studdard and Clay Aiken will take the stage together in "Ruben & Clay's First Annual Christmas Carol Family Fun Pageant Spectacular Reunion Show" aka "Ruben & Clay's Christmas Show."
The Shubert Organization announced Thursday, that Studdard, 40, and Aiken, 39 -- who finished first and second, respectively, on the singing competition in 2003 before launching their successful music careers -- begin previews at Broadway's Imperial Theatre on Dec. 7, with opening night on Dec. 11.
The limited-run holiday revue ends Dec. 30. A portion of ticket sales will benefit Aiken's charitable National Inclusion Project, for children with disabilities. Said Aiken in a statement, "There are really only two things that could get me back on stage after taking a break for over five years: my buddy Ruben and Christmas!"
