Photo Flash: Chondra Profit, Heather Parcells, Brian Craft and More in BROADWAY BATTLES BULLYING at Joe's Pub
On Friday, May 2nd, Broadway Sessions for Broadway Battles Bullying was held at Joe's Pub. Scroll down for photos featuring performers Chondra Profit (The Lion King), Heather Parcells (A Chorus Line, Wonderland), Brian Craft (Avenue Q), Anthony Crouchelli (The Adventures of Tom Sawyer), Rachel Lorin ("The Next Big Thing"), John Ryan Del Bosque (LMPC), Matthew Pritchard (The Spazmatics), Alex Bennett (Cabaret), Brooke Humphrey (Theatre Under The Stars) and Michael Platek!
Proceeds from the performance went to the newly founded Michael Morones Foundation, which was created following the attempted suicide of 11-year-old North Carolina student Michael Morones, who was severely bullied by his fellow classmates for his love of the "My Little Pony" television series. Morones, who attempted to hang himself, was found in time to save his life, but is currently undergoing intensive rehab due to the severity of the brain damage he sustained. He will need ongoing managed care for the rest of his life.
The mission of the Michael Morones Foundation is to educate communities about youth suicide prevention and the effects of bullying. To learn how to donate to the Michael Morones Foundation, visit michaelmorones.org. Visit JoesPub.com for tickets and more information.
