The 7:30 PM concert will boast cast members from the touring company of The Phantom of the Opera and two special guests: Broadway/pop star Deborah Gibson and recording artist Spencer Day. The evening's performers, according to press notes, will perform "song selections of their own choice to present an evening of upbeat, high-energy music, dance and comedy." Proceeds will benefit The Richmond/Ermet AIDS Foundation (REAF) and Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.
To date, REAF has distributed over $2 million to AIDS service agencies.
Tickets for the benefit, priced $40-$65, are available by calling (415) 273-1620 or by visiting www.helpisontheway.org.
