Presented by songwriter Drew Gasparini, the 11:30 PM concert will be hosted by Marc Summers, who is known for hosting the Nickelodeon reality shows "What Would You Do?" and "Double Dare."
Directed by Stephen Agosto (Crazy, Just Like Me) with music direction by Charlie Rosen (associate conductor of Broadway's Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson), the evening will feature performances from Morgan Karr (Spring Awakening), Andrew Kober (Hair), Will Blum (The Book of Mormon), Nadia Quinn (Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson), Brandon Ellis (Once), Lindsay Nicole Chambers (Lysistrata Jones), Monet Sabel, Keith White, Emily Kay Shrader, JD Daw, Meggie Cansler and Trent Mills.
Here's how the concert is described: "For the first time anywhere, Drew Gasparini is assembling New York's most esteemed composers to write the most offensive awful, graphic and hilarious songs to grace the stage. This completely R-rated comedy delves into the issues that matter. Like sexism. Racism. And why two siblings who love each other can't get married in the state of New York."
Broadway Behaving Badly will feature tunes by Gasparini, Kait Kerrigan and Brian Lowdermilk (The Unauthorized Autobiography of Samantha Brown), Michael Kooman and Christopher Dimond (Dani Girl), Zoe Sarnak (A Lasting Impression), Michael Kimmel ("Turn Of The Screw"), Alex Wyse (Bare, Lysistrata Jones), F. Michael Haynie (Wicked), Alex Brightman (Wicked), Michael R. Jackson, Kelly McIntyre, Daniel Green, Michael Shapiro and David Christensen, Jonathan Monro and Summer & Eve.
Gasparini, Kerrigan and Lowdermilk, and Kooman and Dimond are among the songwriters featured in Playbill's Contemporary Musical Theatre Songwriters You Should Know.
