Jay Armstrong Johons-Allison Case in Hands on a Hardbody

In support of the Crime Victims Treatment Center (CVTC) in NYC, broadwayUNLOCKED is proud to present a special performance including some of Broadway’s brightest and up-and-coming stars.  The event, live-streamed on the web from Greenspace in NYC is the first of its kind. Co-sponsoring the event once again is Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, one of the nation’s leading industry-based, nonprofit AIDS fundraising and grant-making organizations.  TheaterAdvisor is a proud media sponsor of the event and we are excited to share with you the great work that everyone involved is doing to support the CVTC. The concert will take pace at WNYC / New York Public Radio’s The Greene Space (44 Charlton St. at Varick).

Performers will include Andrew Keenan Bolger (Newsies, Submission-web series), Alison Case and Jay Armstrong Johnson from Hands on a Hardbody, Drama Desk nominee Nathan Tysen & Chris Miller (Tuck Everlasting),  Mykal Kilgore (The Book of Mormon) and Raena White (Dreamgirls) with the house band backing everyone up being 5J Barrow featuring Jason Hite, Eryn Murman and Eric Namaky.

In 2012, the CVTC provided 7,439 individual therapy sessions to 1,141 survivors, free of charge; the program is hopeful that donations from this benefit will allow them to expand these numbers to offer services to an even greater number of survivors in need
