BROADWAY JACKBOX Series Hosted By Andrew Barth Feldman & Alex Boniello Will Continue With SMASH Cast & More!
The Actors Fund announced today that "Broadway Jackbox," produced by Andrew Barth Feldman and actor and Alex Boniello will continue to air on Tuesdays and Fridays at 6:00PM EST, raising money for The Actors Fund through donations from viewers.
The next episode will air TODAY, Friday, March 20th at 6:00PM and will be themed to the TV Show "Smash,"
featuring Andrew and Alex with cast members Jeremy Jordan, Katharine McPhee, Krysta Rodriguez and Andy Mientus. The series will be hosted on the Broadway Jackbox Twitch channel
which can be found HERE.
"The first ones were such a blast," Feldman said "They completely achieved our goal of creating something silly, fun, and distracting amidst this craziness, but Alex and I both realized we could use this to give back to our community in a more concrete way. With the theater community in such a state of flux, it only seemed right to give to The Actors Fund who are doing all they can to help our industry through this insane, unprecedented time. So let's have some fun and do some good! And also, as the self-appointed head of the #ReviveSmash
campaign, this is big for me."
