Lynn Redgrave Headlines 13th Annual Broadway Blessing; An Interfaith Service Kicking Off New Theatre Season 9/14

Acting legend Lynn Redgrave will headline the 13th annual Broadway Blessing, an interfaith service that will kick-off the new theatre season, on Monday, September 14th from 7:00 PM - 8:15 PM at The cathedral of St. John the Divine, located at 1047 Amsterdam Avenue (at 112th Street), Manhattan.

Broadway Blessing, a program conceived and guest produced by Retta Blaney, is a service comprised of song, story and dance that has been bringing the theatre community together every September since 1997 to bless the new theatre season.

This year's event will include theatre reflections from Redgrave and live performances from award-winning singer/songwriter Carol Hall and J. Mark McVey, who will sing a selection from the musical Amazing Grace: The True Story. The evening will also feature acclaimed Shakespearean actor Casey Groves and dance performances from the internationally recognized group Project Dance.

The Broadway Blessing Choir, under the direction of Director of Cathedral Music Bruce Neswick, will sing show tunes and lead the audience in a sing-a-long at the end of the service.
