On April 30th, Times Square Hard Rock Cafe welcomed "Neil Berg's 100 Years of Broadway" with the purpose to raise money for World Hunger. The Cast of performers included Rob Evan (Jekyll and Hyde), Rita Harvey (Phantom of the Opera), Steve Blanchard (Beauty and the Beast), Carter Calvert (Ain't Nothin' But the Blues), Danny Zolli (Jesus Christ Superstar) and Gerard Canonico (Spring Awakening) and many more!

According to San Francisco's KABC theater critic, Jerry Friedman, "This revue features some of the best songs from the best Broadway shows, sung by some of the most talented performers working today singing many of the songs that they have sung on Broadway."

"Neil Berg's 100 Years of Broadway" recreates the greatest moments from the finest shows of the century featuring the actual stars of shows such as The Phantom of the Opera, Les Miserables, CATS, Jesus Christ Superstar, Spring Awakening, Beauty and The Beast, Fiddler On The Roof, Ain't Nothing But The Blues, Jekyll & Hyde and other great Broadway Shows. These amazing performers light up the stage with songs from the hit shows in which they starred. Neil Berg presents brilliantly revived arrangements of Broadway classics and thrilling numbers from Broadway's newest hit shows.

More than 35.5 million people in the U.S., including 12.6 million children, live in households that struggle to feed their families. Every day WHY helps thousands of America's hungry connect to food pantries, soup kitchens, shelter, and government programs in their neighborhoods by providing immediate help via the National Hunger Hotline 1-866-3-HUNGRY. WHY also supports the work of more than 8,750 community-based organizations working on the frontlines to help poor and hungry Americans move out of poverty, more specifically helping them tap their own power to be self-reliant through job training, life skills, urban farming, after school programs, affordable housing, entrepreneurial businesses, and much more. WHY is a leading advocate for innovative, community-based solutions to hunger and poverty, and challenges society to confront these problems by advancing models that create self-reliance, economic justice, and equal access to nutritious and affordable food. WHY was co-founded in 1975 by artist-activist Harry Chapin and current executive director Bill Ayres and remains connected to their musical roots through their Artists Against Hunger & Poverty initiative with support from Bruce Springsteen, Michael McDonald, Jackson Browne, and many others.
