New York State Gubernatorial candidate Cynthia Nixon was joined by a host of Broadway stars August 26 at Merkin Concert Hall for Broadway Blue Wave for New York.
The lineup included Tony Award winner Laura Benanti (returning to Broadway this fall in My Fair Lady), Emmy winner Edie Falco, Pose star Mj Rodriguez, Hamilton’s Javier Muñoz, Tony nominee Kathleen Chalfant, Orange Is the New Black cast members Annie Golden and Taylor Schilling, Daphne Rubin-Vega (Rent), Tony Yazbeck (On the Town), Steven Boyer (Hand to God), and Caesar Samayoa (Come From Away).
Conceived and produced by Wicked alum Kristy Cates and Harris Doran, the evening was part concert, part progressive political rally and featured musical performances and speeches to inspire New Yorkers to head to the polls September 13 for the state primary. Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812 Tony nominee Rachel Chavkin directed; Mary-Mitchell Campbell served as music director.
