Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS has announced that Broadway Backwards 2018 will take place April 2 at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre.

Broadway Backwards is a star-studded evening featuring performances from 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 theater while challenging the boundaries and limitations of gender and sexual identity. Funds raised during the evening will go to support Broadway Cares and the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center in New York City.

Broadway Backwards creator Robert Bartley will return to direct the show. He will be joined by Mary-Mitchell Campbell as music supervisor and Laura Bergquist as music director. Choreography will be created by Bartley and Adam Roberts. Performers for this year's fundraiser will be announced in the coming weeks.
