Tony Award winners Nikki M. James, Beth Leavel and Tony nominee Gavin Creel, among others, appeared in the Broadway Stands Up for Freedom concert, a benefit for the New York Civil Liberties Union, on July 25 at the Skirball Center.



In addition to James, Leavel and Creel, the evening featured appearances and performances by John Gallagher Jr., Moisés Kaufman, Erica Ash, Nellie McKay, Daphne Rubin-Vega, Erich Bergen, Kyra Da Costa, John Tartaglia, Steven Pasquale, Christina Sajous, Lindsay Mendez, Celia Keenan-Bolger, De'Adre Aziza, Gbenga Akinnagbe, Crystal Starr Knighton, Krysta Rodriguez, Zachary Prince, Liana Stampur and Clinton Curtis.

All proceeds from the evening benefitted the NYCLU's youth programming, including work for LGBT teenagers; the Teen Health Initiative, which educates teenagers on their rights to access health care in New York City; and its work to stop overly aggressive policing and military recruiting in the city’s public schools.
