The evening's special guest performers are Erik Sisto and Shrek's Ben Crawford.

Crawford, who is currently the standby for the role of Shrek in Shrek The Musical at the Broadway Theatre, will take over the title role in that Tony-nominated Broadway musical Nov. 10. Crawford made his Broadway debut in the revival of Les Misérables, where he understudied the roles of both Javert and Jean Valjean. Other past credits include Oliver! at the MUNY (Bill Sykes) and Oklahoma! at TOTS (Jud Fry) as well as productions of Carousel (Billy Bigelow), White Christmas (Bob Wallace), Guys and Dolls (Sky Masterson) and Assassins (John Wilkes-Booth).

Sisco will present Sing What I Wanna Sing Aug. 26 at the Duplex Cabaret Theater. He was the winner of last year's downtown singing competition, Stonewall Sensation.

Broadway Sessions with Ben D is hosted by actor Ben Cameron, who has appeared on Broadway in Footloose, Aida and Wicked. The evening of music, games and comedy at the midtown club begins at 11 PM.

Therapy is located in Manhattan at 348 West 52nd Street. There is no cover charge for the event; attendees must be 21 years or older.
