Feels Like The First Time, a benefit concert presented by the website The Craptacular that will bring together a host of Broadway stars at (le) Poisson Rouge in New York City, will be held Feb. 10.



Performers include Max von Essen (Evita), Tony Award winner Nikki M. James (The Book of Mormon), Julia Murney (Wicked), Ben Platt (The Book of Mormon), Elizabeth Stanley (Million Dollar Quartet) and Tony nominees Tony Sheldon (Priscilla Queen of the Desert) and Barbara Walsh (Falsettos), among others.

Andrew Kober (Hair) will host Feels Like The First Time, which will be directed by Colin Hanlon ("Submissions Only," Rent) and feature music direction by Tony and Grammy Award winner Stephen Oremus (Kinky Boots, The Book of Mormon, Wicked).

The 7 PM concert promises an "evening of story and song [where] some of your favorite Broadway babies will recount their first time, and things could get... messy."

Proceeds from the performance will benefit three-year-old Cameron Huffine — recently diagnosed with Inflammatory Myofibroblastic Cancer — and Children's Hospital Colorado.

Feels Like The First Time is co-produced by The Craptacular (Aileen McKenna and Laura Motta) and Katie Riegel.

(le) Poisson Rouge is located at 158 Bleecker Street. For more information and tickets, click here or here.
