‚Äč

The first annual Born for Broadway was held Monday, June 22nd at 8:00 p.m. at New World Stages, 340 West 50th Street, New York. Directed by Marcia Milgrom Dodge, director of the recent "Ragtime" at the Kennedy Center with musical direction by Larry Yurman ("Grey Gardens"), Born for Broadway was a one-night celebrity cabaret, featuring both established Broadway performers as well as undiscovered talent. Proceeds benefit the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation.

Born for Broadway first began as a student-sponsored musical revue at Marymount Manhattan College, where event founder Sarah Galli was enrolled as a performance major. Galli founded the event as a way to involve the theatre community so beloved by Christopher and Dana Reeve, as well as raising funds for a worthwhile organization. Galli's brother was spinal cord injured 11 years ago and is a high level quadriplegic.

The Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation is dedicated to curing spinal cord injury by funding innovative research, and improving the quality of life for people living with paralysis through grants, information and advocacy. For more information, and to review the entire list of Quality of Life grant recipients, please visit our website at www.ChristopherReeve.org or call 800-225-0292.
