“In 2011, my best friend, actor and survivor Avery Ragsdale had his life saved thanks to the free therapy and services he received at Crime Victims Treatment Center,” Broadway Unlocked founder Jessica Ryan said in a statement. “He asked if I would help get our friends to lend their talents and raise money for a coloring table for their lobby, I knew a coloring table wasn't enough. Seven years later, Broadway Unlocked and Crime Victims Treatment Center continue to bring together a powerhouse roster of Broadway, TV, YouTube and film talent to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars. Thanks to the visibility of the #MeToo movement and #TimesUp, it's more important than ever that we continue do our part to keep the doors open so that other people like Avery can receive help and healing regardless of their financial circumstances.”
General admission tickets are $120, VIP tickets are $250, and tickets are available online at BroadwayUnlocked.Ticketspice.com.
