Marc Eardley, producing artistic director of 3STC, said in a statement, "Not very often do many Broadway stars get the chance to share the stage, and their talents, to help bring awareness to a worthwhile cause. I'm thrilled to be given the opportunity to work together with such fine talent in bringing Broadway to New Jersey."
