Joining Rodriguez (First Date, The Addams Family) at the 11 PM concert are Nick Blaemire (Godspell, Dogfight), Alex Brightman (Big Fish, Wicked), James Crichton, Ariana DeBose (Motown, Bring It On), Jake Epstein (Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark, "Degrassi"), F. Michael Haynie (Wicked, Dogfight), Emma Hunton (Rent, Spring Awakening), Julia Mattison (Godspell), Alexander Sage Oyen and Ariella Serur.
Directed and produced by Max Friedman, the concert features musical direction and original arrangements by Charlie Rosen (One Man, Two Guvnors). Cassidy Rose co-produces.
According to press notes, "Stars from Broadway band together and raise their voices in tribute to the work of singer/songwriter Andrew McMahon. Savvy music mavens know Andrew from his work with his bands Something Corporate and Jack's Mannequin. As a solo artist, his tunes were heard most recently on NBC's 'Smash.' McMahon's passionate, personal lyrics and melodic, piano-driven music are a perfect fit for some of the most exciting performers from the world of musical theatre."
Proceeds benefit McMahon's charity, The Dear Jack Foundation, which provides a powerful voice in the fight against young adult cancer. For more information, visit DearJackFoundation.com.
