Stage and screen star Richard Kind, a Tony nominee for The Big Knife, hosted the fifth annual Born for Broadway fundraiser Oct. 13 at 8 PM at the Merkin Concert Hall.

The evening marks Kind’s second time hosting the show, which he helped to inaugurate in 2009.

Tony nominee Marcia Milgrom Dodge directed the fundraiser with music direction by Lawrence Yurman.

Performers included Adrian Bailey, Ashley Blanchet, Danielle Brooks, E. Clayton Cornelius, Hunter Ryan Herdlicka, Khaya, Carole Lasser, Adriane Lenox, Lesli Margherita, Zane, Timothy McDevitt, Robert Petkoff, Steve Rosen, Jesse Ruben, Peter Scolari, Ryan Silverman, Ali Stroker, John Tartaglia, Wesley Taylor, Marc Shaiman, Scott Wittman and Rema Webb.

Founder and executive producer Sarah Galli created Born for Broadway in 2003 as a way to give back to her community after her brother Jeff suffered a spinal cord injury. Eleven years later, it has evolved from a student-run music revue into an annual cabaret that brings together established Broadway and television performers and emerging talent, including individuals with paralysis, to benefit paralysis-related causes.

All proceeds benefit Unite 2 Fight Paralysis, a nonprofit that supports international advocacy, education and spinal cord injury research.
