22 Jun 2014
Bryan Campione and Harold Lewter will present Broadway Celebrates Pride Week, a concert kicking off New York City Pride week that will benefit the Hetrick-Martin Institute, June 23 at 54 Below. In anticipation of the evening, the cast picks songs of pride as part of this week's Playbill Playlist.
#SheHasHadIt creator Jarvis Derrell will make a special appearance, and a song composed by composers Douglas Lyons and Ethan Pakchar will be performed.
Here's how the evening is billed: "Oh, what a night this will be, when all the colors of the rainbow unite in support of the LGBTQ Broadway Community for this Pride extravaganza! Featuring many of Broadway's best and brightest performing songs from Broadway, pop, rock, soul, country, and beyond, a portion of the evening's proceeds will also go to support the Hetrick-Martin Institute."
Michael McAssey will provide music direction.
As previously announced, Playbill celebrates LGBTQ Pride Month by altering its iconic logo to rainbow, providing our readers with "30 Days of Pride" feature stories and more.
