Broadway After Dark (B.A.D.), according to press notes, is a "nightlife event catered toward Equity actors; a place where performers can relax, release and network within the Broadway community. Each month a different cast of singers, dancers, and musicians perform for an appreciative crowd of their peers and theatre supporters while raising money for various worthy causes."
The evening benefits R.Evolución Latina, an affiliate of Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS that was created to "further empower the Latino community and the artistic community at large through creative collaboration and community activism."
Doors open at 8 PM; performances begin at 9 PM.

Dinner with the Boys is the deliciously hilarious new comedy starring Dan Lauria (“The Wonder Years”, Lombardi), Ray Abruzzo (“The Sopranos”) and Richard Zavaglia (“Donnie Brasco”). When two wise guys from the old neighborhood, Charlie (Lauria) and Dom (Zavaglia), find themselves at odds with the family, they must serve up perfectly seasoned performances with their puttanesca to escape danger. This odd couple awaits their fate as they prepare dinner for their special guests. It’s an evening filled with belly laughs, killer plot twists and plenty of garlic. The only question remaining is “will this dinner be their last meal?"
