Stephanie J. Block, Daniel Breaker, Judy Kaye, Estelle Parsons and Tony Sheldon are among the roster of stars who will be featured at the eighth annual Broadway Backwards benefit, which will be held on March 18 at the Palace Theatre. Proceeds from the event will go to Broadway Cares/Equity Fights Aids and the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center.
Block and co. will be joined by two-time Emmy winner Bruce Vilanch, Anita Gillette, Jose Llana, Jim Brochu, Ward Billeisen, Tituss Burgess, Robert Creighton (The Mystery of Edwin Drood) and Kyle Dean Massey (Wicked). Additional performers will be announced soon.
Created eight years ago by Robert Bartley (who returns to direct and choreograph again this year), Broadway Backwards is an annual celebration of gay and lesbian culture through musical theater performances by some of Broadway’s favorite actors.
The 2012 edition of Broadway Backwards featured performances by Andrew Rannells, Betty Buckley, Robin De Jesus and Mario Cantone. The event raised a record-breaking $329,000.
