Founded by Tommy cast member Donnie Kehr, Rockers on Broadway is also honoring Michael Cerveris with a Lifetime Achievement in Theatre Award this year. Cerveris earned a Tony nomination for his 1993 Broadway debut in the show’s starring role.

Also honored this year is Bad Company and Free drummer Simon Kirke.

The 8 PM concert will also include performances by Jeremy Kushnier, Jennifer Perry, Ryann Redmond, Max Sanergman, and Tony Vincent, along with the all-kid band from School of Rock, and rising stars Isabel Gottfried, and Amanda Swickle.

Proceeds benefit The PATH Fund, Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, and arts education programs with Broadway Bound Kids. Since the inception of Rockers in 1993 and PATH in 2007, over a half million dollars has been raised for performing arts charities.

Tickets are now on sale at rockersonbroadway.com and at lepoissonrouge.com.
