Katrina Lenk Joins Tonight's Benefit Concert For Darkness RISING at Birdland Jazz Club

BroadwayWorld has learned that Katrina Lenk has joined the previously announced benefit concert for Darkness RISING, set for tonight, September 20, at Birdland Jazz Club.

Lenk joins previously announced members of the cast of Company, including Kathryn Allison, Terence Archie, Nikki Renée Daniels, Matt Doyle, Claybourne Elder, Javier Ignacio, Christopher Sieber, Jennifer Simard, and Bobby Conte Thornton, with Company's associate music director Paul Staroba on piano.

The concert takes place on Monday, September 20 at 7 PM ET at Birdland Jazz Club (315 West 44th Street). Tickets are available now at www.birdlandjazz.com.

Darkness RISING is a non-profit organization composed of singers and musicians from the Black Broadway community and Black mental health providers whose purpose is to help those in both the Black community, as well as for Broadway show company members begin conversations about mental health, provide direct resources, and erase the negative stigma of mental health issues.

Carlita Victoria, Executive Director of Darkness RISING said, "We are grateful to the cast of Company for raising awareness and much needed funding to support our mission. Thanks to Company cast members, we will be able to continue providing direct mental health resources to marginalized communities which experience ongoing barriers to resources, as well as artists navigating the difficulties of the past 18 months."

The cast of Company was inspired by the organization's mission, workshops, and toolkits. One resource, Broadway for Mental Health Support, a campaign in collaboration with Adrienne Warren, helps provide therapy and mental health resources for returning Broadway company members through funding contributed by show producers.

All ticket holders to the concert will be required to show proof of vaccination upon entry.
