The annual event will take place March 11.
The lineup has been announced for this year's edition of Broadway Backwards, set to take place March 11 at the New Amsterdam Theatre. Jenn Colella hosts.
The evening features performances from stars of stage and screen with men singing songs originally intended for women, and vice versa. Artists will honor the great songs of musical theater while celebrating the LGBTQ community and creating an environment of equality, awareness, and love.
The one-night-only event will include performances by Tony winners Len Cariou, Gavin Creel, Rachel Bay Jones, Donna McKechnie, and Bebe Neuwirth; Tony nominees Ariana DeBose, Andrew Rannells, Jarrod Spector, and Kathleen Turner; and Broadway favorites Clyde Alves, Lilli Cooper, Nathan Lee Graham, Robyn Hurder, Caitlin Kinnunen, Caissie Levy, Isabelle McCalla, Bonnie Milligan, and the Broadway Inspirational Voices.
Creator Robert Bartley will return to direct the show. He will be joined by Mary-Mitchell Campbell as music supervisor and Ted Arthur and Christopher D. Littlefield as music directors.
Presented by Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, this event benefits Broadway Cares and the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center in New York City.
