Whoopi Goldberg was announced to host the event at Avery Fisher Hall that was created as a benefit for Friends In Deed, God’s Love We Deliver, Hispanic Federation, International AIDS Prevention Initiative, The NAMES Project Foundation and Rosie O’Donnell’s Rosie’s Theater Kids.

A reason was not provided for the postponement.

The performance was to have honored the NAMES Project AIDS Memorial Quilt, as well as the 30th anniversary of the HIV/AIDS crisis.

In addition to James (The Book of Mormon), Maroulis (Rock of Ages) and Rubin-Vega (Rent), the concert was to feature Anthony Rapp (Rent), Heather Raffo (9 Parts of Desire) and Steven Cupo (Sweeney Todd). David Esbjornson was announced to direct.

Quilt has a book by Jim Morgan, Merle Hubbard and John Schak. Music is by Michael Stockler, with lyrics by Morgan. The pop-rock musical intertwines songs and monologues of volunteers involved in the NAMES project, as well as those of survivors and the loved ones they have left behind.
