WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

An array of Broadway legends, as well as a host of up-and-coming players, come together for a gender-bending concert featuring show tune favorites. Broadway Backwards 3 (BB3) presents a diverse cast of male singers performing songs traditionally performed by female singers, and vice versa, with all proceeds benefiting the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender (LGBT) Community Center in New York City. The star-studded cast includes Neil Patrick Harris, Gary Beach, Charles Busch, Cheyenne Jackson, Nancy Dussault, Malcolm Gets, Tituss Burgess, David Burtka, Tastiskank (Broadway duo of Kate Reinders and Sarah Litzsinger), and a bevy of other performers. The evening features classic show tunes with a twist-in past years Andrea Burns delivered a tender rendition of "Maria" from West Side Story and Tony-Award nominee Michael McElroy sang "One Night Only" from Dreamgirls. Matt Cavenaugh and Cheyenne Jackson's performance of "We Kiss in a Shadow" was named Best Dynamic Duet of 2006 by Playbill. Co-Creator and Director Robert Bartley returns to direct the show, with Mark Janas as musical director. John Kander and Terrence McNally serve as event co-chairs.
