Pokémon Voice Actors To Raise Funds For The Brick Theater With Virtual Event

The Broadway community and fifty Pokémon cast members are joining forces to raise funds for The Brick Theater in Brooklyn (579 Metropolitan Avenue) after the non-profit venue postponed all shows back in March due to the coronavirus pandemic.

This Sunday, Anna Roisman (Host of HQ Words, Buzzfeed, The Unemployed Podcast) and Audie Award Winner Barrett Leddy (Yu-Gi-Oh, Pokémon, The Howard Stern Show) are hosting a spelling bee benefit with dozens of voice actors behind the most beloved Pokémon characters of all time.

Special guests include Voice Arts Awards winner Sarah Natochenny (voice of "Ash Ketchum" in Pokémon), Emily Cramer (Broadway's School of Rock and LES MISERABLES) and Todd Haberkorn (Fairy Tail, Fullmetal Alchemist).

"I'm doing this because Theresa is an unwavering supporter of emerging artists," Natochenny said. "I was so lucky to get to know her as my director on Pokémon. She is a joy to work with and I am so honored to be able to help her keep The Brick Theater alive."

"I want The Brick to survive with every bit of my being, because space and time to create and connect are vital," former Pokémon director and artistic director of The Brick Theater Theresa Buchheister said.
