Come From Away star Jenn Colella will host this year's edition of Broadway Backwards, set to take place March 11 at the New Amsterdam Theatre.

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.

Performers are still to be announced. 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.
