Kids' Night on Broadway is an annual event when kids ages 18 and under can see Broadway shows for free when accompanied by a full-paying adult. A ticket includes restaurant discounts, educational programs and more.

In a statement O'Hara said, "As a mother of two in real life and a school teacher currently on the stage, I love to promote all arts but especially theatre to kids of all ages. I love to imagine where the experiences might take them for the evening or maybe even for a lifetime."

Matlin said, "I’ve always believed in sharing theatre experiences with kids, having started in theatre when I was seven years old, when no one thought a young deaf girl could be on a stage. For me, it’s important to bring all kids to experience theatre, hearing, deaf and otherwise abled. Theatre is where a child’s imagination knows no barriers and their dreams can come true."
