Featuring a company of over 100 Latinx artists, ¡Viva Broadway! Hear Our Voices made a splash when it premiered October 1. The concert event benefiting Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS and Broadway Bridges raised a grand total of $189,598.
These funds will provide groceries for families in need, life-saving medication, emergency COVID-19 assistance, and more through Broadway Cares, while also supporting affiliate organization R.Evolución Latina. Founded by Viva Associate Director and Co-Choreographer Luis Salgado, R.Evolución Latina “activates individual and collective human growth through artistic experiences for transformation and social change,” specifically reaching Latinx communities. Funds for Broadway Bridges will help send New York City public school students to a Broadway show before they graduate, cultivating the future audience of theatre as well as inspiring the creators of tomorrow.
