Max Von Essen, Kara Lindsay & More Set for BROADWAY GETS OUT THE VOTE Tonight, 10/14
Broadway for Obama founders and Broadway siblings Celia Keenan-Bolger (Peter and the Starcatcher) and Andrew Keenan-Bolger (Newsies) previously announced a one-night-only event for Obama supporters, "Broadway Gets Out the Vote," to be held tonight, October 14th from 7 to 10 p.m. at 405 West 55th Street.
The event, meant to motivate and educate the theater community about what Barack Obama stands for and how to get involved with his re-election, will include Broadway favorites Nick Adams, Max von Essen, Da'Vine Joy Randolph, Kara Lindsay, Nikki Rene Daniels and more, with a live performance by Lauren Molina and Nick Cearley of The Skivvies.
"It's intimidating, but we're up for it," said founder Celia Keenan-Bolger. "The only way we're going to win this election is by reaching out to people in swing states and showing our enthusiasm for President Obama."
The evening will begin with an information session explaining how to get involved, followed by phone banking. The event is open to the public, but requires an RSVP at this link: https://my.barackobama.com/page/event/detail/gb734b.
