Kelli O’Hara, the recent Tony-winning star of The King and I, will host the June 20 benefit concert Arts For Autism at the Gershwin Theatre. The concert will begin at 7:30 PM.
Additional Broadway talent will be announced for the concert that supports Autism Speaks.
In addition, the Broadway performers will be joined by young performing arts students from around the country who have auditioned for the opportunity to perform on a Broadway stage and support Autism Speaks.
The concert is being produced by Believe NYC and Educational Travel Adventures. Concert producer and artistic director, Jacque Carnahan, said in a statement, “It’s going to be an inspiring evening of song and dance to support a wonderful cause. We believe the arts can change lives, including those who are affected by Autism. In addition to being masterfully entertained, the audience will come away with a deeper understanding of Autism, and hopefully inspired to bring this new compassion into their daily lives.”
