Highlights from Broadway Backwards 8 with Brian Stokes Mitchell, Kyle Dean Massey and Stephanie J. Block

Robert Bartley created Broadway Backwards not only as a fundraiser for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS and the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center of New York City, but also as a vehicle through which to tell stories from an LGBT perspective. In this eighth offering of the show, stars from stage and screen joined up at Broadway's Palace Theatre to perform some of the most iconic songs from the world of musical theatre with the Backwards signature twist. Howie Michael Smith runs through "Happy to Keep His Dinner Warm" from How To Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, Brian Stokes Mitchell takes on the Gershwins' "The Man I Love," Stephanie J. Block performs "Our Time" from Merrily We Roll Along and Kyle Dean Massey and Robert Creighton (along with an all-male ensemble) celebrate A Little Night Music's "A Weekend in the Country."
