Defying Inequality Concert on Monday

Next Monday, February 23 at 8 pm, stars from the Broadway community and beyond will come together at NYC’s Gershwin Theatre (222 W. 51 Street) for Defying Inequality: The Broadway Concert – a celebrity benefit for equal rights. The special evening will benefit the Pride Agenda as well as Equality California, the Family Equality Council, Garden State Equality, and Vermont Freedom to Marry Task Force – all organizations that work to promote equality and protect civil rights for the gay and lesbian community.

The benefit will include the Broadway debut of Marc Shaiman's internet sensation, Prop 8 - The Musical, a special performance by Stephen Schwartz (composer of Wicked), and appearances by Cyndi Lauper, David Hyde Pierce, Harvey Fierstein, Carson Kressley, Judy Gold, Nathan Lane, Michael Urie, Mark Indelicato, Rue McClanahan – and many more. These stars will also be joined by members of the casts of Billy Elliot, The Color Purple National Tour, Gypsy, Hair, Jersey Boys, The Lion King, The Little Mermaid, Mamma Mia!, Mary Poppins, South Pacific, Spring Awakening, Wicked – and even more. New cast members are being added every day as more people and organizations sign on to make a difference for LGBT rights.

Tickets are $50-$100 – for more information or to purchase, click here. We hope to see you there!
