Entitled On Broadway! A Glittering Salute to the American Musical, the annual benefit will be followed by a supper with the stars in The Hilton's Grand Ballroom. Written by Deborah Grace Winer and produced and directed by Ann Marie DeAngelo, On Broadway!, press notes state, is a "glorious historical journey inside the Broadway musical seen through the eyes of legendary choreographers." A host of dance companies, musicians, dancers and theatre stars are expected to be part of the performance. Casting will be announced at a later date.
