Broadway Backwards
Monday, April 2, 8 p.m.
Al Hirschfeld Theatre, 302 W 45 St, NYC

This star-studded evening features Broadway’s brightest talents, with a twist: men sing songs originally intended for women, and vice versa. Artists will honor the great songs of musical theatre while challenging the boundaries and limitations of gender and sexuality in this evening when love comes before all else.

Broadway Backwards is produced by Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS and benefiting Broadway Cares and the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center in New York City.

Then, pop into our Market Place to play in the donut shop, BBQ food truck and lemonade stand before you head to the farmer's market.
