The annual Broadway Backwards fundraiser, featuring gender-reversed and star-studded twists on classic and modern favorites, will be held March 11 at 8 PM at the New Amsterdam Theatre.
Come From Away Tony nominee Jenn Colella will host the event, which is produced by Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS and benefits Broadway Cares and the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center in New York City.
Creator Robert Bartley will again direct the evening, with music supervision by Mary-Mitchell Campbell and musical direction by Ted Arthur and Christopher D. Littlefield. Performers and choreographers will be announced shortly.
Attendees can expect performances from stars of stage and screen with men singing songs originally intended for women and vice versa. Artists will honor the songs of musical theatre while celebrating the LGBTQ community and creating an environment of equality, awareness, and love.
Last year’s performance raised a record $680,273.
