Don’t miss it! The show is for one night only and features some of the biggest stars of Stage and TV – “From Broadway With Love: A Benefit Concert for Parkland, USA” at the BB&T Center in Sunrise at 7 pm on April 16. Rachel Bloom, Matthew Morrison, Wayne Brady, and Deborah Cox are a few of the famous names planning to unite. But the highlight of the evening will undoubtedly be the original vocal performance by students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
Tickets, $50, are available through the BB&T Center box office, Ticketmaster.com, and pay-by-phone (1-800-345-7000).
Tony-winning producers, conductors and recording-label executives, including the co-producers of “Once on This Island,” Van Dean and Yael Silver compiled the impressive cast. And the list of performers is a long one – Kirstin Maldonado (Pentatonix), Noah Galvin (“Dear Evan Hansen”), Justin Guarini (“In Transit,” “American Idol”), and Ephraim Sykes (“Hamilton,” “Hairspray Live”) continue the talented lineup.
The new music was written by the Stoneman Douglas students and acclaimed composers Joe Iconis, Drew Gasparini, Bobby Cronin, Zoe Sarnak, and others. The performers will be accompanied by the South Florida Symphony.
The event will also feature a tribute by shooting victim Jaime Guttenberg’s dance troupe.
10,000 tickets were donated to the families of Stoneman Douglas students and staff. Proceeds from the concert will go to the Marjory Stoneman Douglas Victims Fund, operated by the Broward Education Foundation along with Shine MSD.
In addition to the concert event, organizers have set up a crowdfunding page where patrons who donate $50 or more will receive a soon-to-be-released CD, DVD and Blu-ray of the concert.
According to their website, From Broadway With Love: A Benefit Concert For Parkland, USA is presented in partnership with the BB&T Center and is also made possible by the generosity of JetBlue, Broward Center for the Performing Arts and It’s Sugar.
