New York State Gubernatorial candidate Cynthia Nixon will join fellow Tony Award winner Laura Benanti and Emmy winner Edie Falco, as well as Pose star Mj Rodriguez, Hamilton’s Javier Muñoz, Tony nominee Kathleen Chalfant, and Orange Is the New Black cast members Annie Golden and Taylor Schilling August 26 at Merkin Concert Hall for Broadway Blue Wave for New York.
Conceived and produced by Wicked alum Kristy Cates and Harris Doran, the evening is part concert, part progressive political rally and will feature musical performances and speeches to inspire New Yorkers to head to the polls September 13 for the State Primary.

The performers will be joined by New York State Senate candidates Julie Goldberg, Robert Jackson, John Liu, Jessica Ramos, and Jasmine Robinson.
