Additional performers for the New York Civil Liberties Union's annual Broadway Stands Up For Freedom benefit have been announced. The event will be held July 21 at the NYU Skirball Center for the Performing Arts.

Broadway veterans Adam Chanler-Berat (Fly by Night), Justin Guarini (Wicked), Zachary Unger (Newsies), and Barrett Foa (Buyer & Cellar) join a lineup that already includes Tony Award winner Lena Hall (Hedwig and the Angry Inch), Tony nominees Celia Keenan-Bolger (The Glass Menagerie), Condola Rashad (Romeo and Juliet), and Robin De Jesús (Grease), and Seth Rudetsky, Telly Leung (Grease), Todd Buonopane (Cinderella), Liana Stampur, and the Clinton Curtis band.

Susan Blackwell ([title of show]) will host the event, with Paul Staroba as music director and Daniel Goldstein (Godspell) returning as director. In addition to performances from Broadway favorites, the event will feature an original video by Broadway veteran Andrew Keenan-Bolger. The evening will showcase the teenage winners of the NYCLU's Freedom of Expression contest, which invites New York City public schools students to speak their minds on important civil liberties issues in their lives.

Proceeds from the show benefit the NYCLU, one of the nation's foremost defenders of civil liberties and civil rights.
