Born for Broadway, the fourth annual celebrity cabaret that features Broadway and TV stars who donate their time and talent to raise money for paralysis-based organizations, is held Sept. 30 at 54 Below.
Tony nominee Marcia Milgrom Dodge (Ragtime) directs with music direction by Lawrence Yurman (Far From Heaven, On A Clear Day You Can See Forever, Grey Gardens).
Born for Broadway was created ten years ago as a student-sponsored cabaret at Marymount Manhattan College, where founder and executive producer Sarah Galli was enrolled as a performance major. Galli created the show as a way to give back after her brother, Jeff, suffered a spinal cord injury in 1998 in a diving accident.
Born for Broadway's mission, according to press notes, "is to engage college campuses across the nation in raising funds for paralysis related organizations. By engaging young artists and producers in this philanthropic commitment, students have an opportunity to produce their own musical theatre production, while using their time and talent for a greater cause. The annual Broadway gala showcases the performances of both established performers as well as emerging talent. All funds contributed from college productions and the gala benefit research and quality of life for individuals living with paralysis, through both national and grassroots non-profit organizations."
