New York City:
A fledgling museum on Manhattan's Upper West Side is the scene of our story.

Meanwhile:
Our heroes, the 'Broadway Stars' prepare to come to the rescue and restore tranquility to the Metropolis.

It doesn't have the intensity of a comic book plot, but the New York City Comic Book Museum is hosting a benefit concert with some real-life Broadway stars. On Nov. 13, Marie LaFerrara (Foxy Ladies Love/Boogie 70's Explosion!) will host "Heart and Music: An Evening of Comedy and Song" at the Church of St. Paul the Apostle Auditorium.

Other stars that will lend their time to benefit the museum include David Benoit of Les Misérables, Liz McCartney of Phantom of the Opera and Sean McNally of Naked Boys Singing.

A complimentary reception will follow the performance. All proceeds from the benefit will go toward the museum's programs that exhibit and preserve both the educational and entertainment value of comic books. The event takes place at the Church of St. Paul the Apostle Auditorium (9th Ave. and 60th St.) at 8 PM. Tickets are $25-30 and can be purchased by calling (212) 712-9454.
