The evening, which will consist of original LGBTQ-themed works, will benefit The Trevor Project, the leading national organization focused on crisis and suicide prevention efforts among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) youth.
Audiences can expect short plays penned by Ian August, Ken Urban, J.T. Michael Taylor, Kevin R. Free, Joshua Conkel and Clay McLeod Chapman. Directors include Gretchen Ferris, Darren Katz, Scott Ebersold, Christopher Burris and Moritz von Stuelpnagel.
Among those actors who will bring these plays to life are Adam Chanler-Berat (Next to Normal, Peter and the Starcatcher), Andrew Kober (Hair) and three of Les Cagelles from La Cage aux Folles (Sean Patrick Doyle, Nicholas Cunningham and Logan Kesler) as well as Bobby Moreno, Andy Phelan, Romy Nordlinger, Christopher Stokes, Michael Sutherland, Logan Ford, Stacy Ayn Price, Erin Mallon, John-Andrew Morrison, Shydel James and Tracey Lee.
Creator and co-producer Silvestri said in a statement, "This was important to me because I feel it gives us an outlet to respond to the issues creatively while establishing a proactive environment for our audience; by simply participating in this event and paying the price of a ticket, our audience will be showing their support for these young people and making a collective statement that we care."
