Broadway Backwards, the annual benefit concert celebrating the LGBTQ+ community via songs from the musical theatre, will return to Broadway’s New Amsterdam Theatre, current home of Disney's Aladdin, March 11 at 8 PM.

Produced by Broadway Cares, the evening will benefit the theatrical nonprofit and New York City’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center (The Center). Guest performers will be announced at a later date.

Creator Robert Bartley will return to direct and choreograph the show, joined by music supervisors Ted Arthur and Mary-Mitchell Campbell, music director Michael Gacetta, associate music directors Nicholas Connors and Nick Wilders, choreographer Skye Mattox, and choreographer and associate director Adam Roberts. ARC’s Mark Brandon and Jarrett Reiche are casting consultants.

What began as a small, grassroots concert performed at The Center in 2006 has grown into a highly anticipated event. In its 17 editions, Broadway Backwards has raised more than $7 million for Broadway Cares and The Center. Last year’s edition raised a record $765,069. The 67-person cast featured Corbin Bleu, Wayne Brady, Robbie Fairchild, Robyn Hurder, Bonnie Milligan, Anthony Rapp, Lea Salonga, and more backed by a 13-piece orchestra.

VIP tickets include premium seats and a special post-show reception with the cast. A limited number of “Backstage & Beyond” ticket packages also are available.

Broadway Cares is one of the nation’s leading industry-based, nonprofit AIDS fundraising and grant-making organizations. By drawing upon the talents, resources, and generosity of the American theater community, since 1988 Broadway Cares has raised more than $300 million for essential services for people with HIV/AIDS and other critical illnesses across the United States.

Tickets are now available at BroadwayCares.org.
