The co-chairs for this event include Annette Bening and Warren Beatty as well as Joseph Wender and Ann Colgin.

Here's how the evening is billed, "The event features the Tony Award winner’s unique Broadway baritone style, exciting new arrangements and a performance that uses movement, evocative lighting and ambient sound effects for an imaginative evening of song. Stokes will be accompanied by his remarkable pianist of six years, Tedd Firth, offering hits from his recent and aptly titled album, 'Simply Broadway.' Selections from Camelot, Porgy and Bess, Company, Sunday in the Park with George, Les Misérables and others will round-out the performance."

Mitchell will perform in the Gil Cates Theater (10886 Le Conte Avenue, Los Angeles) at the Geffen at 8 PM. He is a multiple award winner for his work on the New York stage – having won Tony, Drama Desk, and Outer Critics Circle awards – for performances in such productions as Kiss Me Kate, Man of La Mancha, Ragtime and August Wilson's King Hedley II among others.

Tickets begin at $50 with donor packages starting at $1,000.
