Edie Falco Hosts Concert for OVER THE MOON: THE BROADWAY LULLABY PROJECT Release Tonight, 5/7
A free concert celebrating the release of Over The Moon: The Broadway Lullaby Project, a multi-media charity project that includes a two-CD set of original lullabies composed and sung by Broadway's brightest stars, a lavishly-illustrated hardcover book of 17 songs from the album, a corresponding e-book encompassing the entire collection, and a documentary film. The project gathers many of contemporary theater's greatest composers and vocalists, as well as award-winning illustrators and set designers, all of whom donated their talent to this endeavor.
The project will raise money for two respected breast cancer charities, The Breast Cancer Research Foundation and Young Survival Coalition. Tonight, May 7, 2012. Concert at 8:00 pm at the Stephen Sondheim Theater, 124 West 43rd Street, between Broadway and Avenue of the Americas.

Kate Dawson and Jodi Glucksman, co-executive producers of Over the Moon: The Broadway Lullaby Project, have organized this event with the help of fiscal sponsor Public Interest Projects, Inc.
