Erik Liberman, J. Bernard Calloway and More Will Take Part in Triad Concert Benefiting Disaster Relief for the Philippines
14 Jan 2014
An Evening of Music and Comedy: Disaster Relief for the Philippines will be held Jan. 20 at Stage 72 at the Triad.
The evening, set to begin at 9 PM, will include performances from singers Erik Liberman (Lovemusik), J. Bernard Calloway (Memphis), Melissa Van Pelt, Vanessa Dawson, Steven M. Goldsmith, Chris Critelli, Eliza Hayes Maher, Alia Bisharat and The Manhattan Dolls and comedians Rick Younger, Chris Griggs, Aaron Friedman and Carrie Gravenson.
According to press notes, "On Nov. 7, 2013 the Philippines was hit by Super Typhoon Haiyan, the deadliest natural disaster on record. It took the lives of over 6,000 people and displaced over 4 million people. The need for assistance and relief is still essential. So with this in mind, Broadway and Off-Broadway singers and NYC based comedians present an evening of entertainment to raise awareness and much needed funds for the relief effort."
Produced by Vanessa Dawson and hosted by Chelsea Piers, proceeds from An Evening of Music and Comedy will benefit The Red Cross, and a live auction will be held at intermission.
The Triad is located at 158 W 72nd Street. Tickets are $10 in advance and $20 at the door; there is a two-drink minimum. For more information, click here.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
