Photo Coverage: BROADWAY BACKWARDS 4 - Performance Part One

Broadway Backwards is a star-studded event featuring songs that even those not familiar with Broadway know and love, with a very unique and memorable twist. Instead of seeing a woman sing the iconic "As Long As He Needs Me" from Oliver!, if that song were to be featured in Broadway Backwards, you might see someone like Alan Cumming sing it! The event was a benefit for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center of Manhattan.

The gender-reversed benefit concert extravaganza is always one of the Center's most anticipated events of the year, and on Monday, February 9, 2009, Broadway Backwards returned to Broadway's American Airlines Theatre. BroadwayWorld's cameras were everywhere to capture all the gender-bending fun!

Back at the creative and directorial helm was its creator Robert Bartley. The creative team included Musical Director Paul Staroba, Lighting Designer Paul Miller, Sound Design by Real Live Audio, Costume Designer Lane Fragomeli, and Associate Director & Choreographer Penny Ayn Maas.

Platinum Sponsors this year were HBO and the New York Marriott Marquis.

Established in 1983, the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center has grown to become the largest LGBT multi-service organization on the East Coast and second largest LGBT community center in the world.
