On October 9, Broadway performers will gather to raise funds to support the rebuilding of Houston’s theatre district in the wake of Hurricane Harvey.
B'way❤Houston: A Concert To Rebuild Houston's Downtown Theater District will be presented at Midtown Manhattan’s The Green Room 42 at Yotel. Tickets (priced at $100) are available at TheGreenRoom42.com; the 7 PM concert, featuring a host of Broadway favorites, will also be live-streamed.
Additional donations can be made by visiting HelpHoustonTheaterDistrict.org.
All of the proceeds will go directly to repairing the theatres damaged in Houston’s downtown theatre district, which has been updated to include The Alley, The Wortham, and The Jones Theaters.
Three performers have just been added to the stellar lineup of talent for the concert: two-time Tony recipient Brian Stokes Mitchell (Kiss Me, Kate), Corey Cott (Bandstand), and Caissie Levy (Frozen).
As previously announced, Ali Stroker, Tony Award winners Jessie Mueller and Nikki M. James, Tony nominees Andy Karl, Orfeh, Tony Yazbeck, Kevin Chamberlin, Michael Arden, and Phillip Boykin, as well as Lesli Margherita, Phoebe Strole, Alex Newell, Kenita Miller, The Skivvies (Lauren Molina & Nick Cearley), and Kate Rockwell will all perform.
The evening will feature musical direction by host Seth Rudetsky and is directed by David Perlow. B'way❤Houston is produced by Perlow and Spring Awakening alum Ali Stroker, founding artistic director and founding managing director, respectively, of ATTENTIONTheatre, as well as Brooke Singer and Houston natives Kenny and Paula Singer.
Kenny Singer has been a representative of Playbill in the Houston area for over 25 years. The home belonging to him and his wife, Paula, was badly damaged as a result of the storm.
