10th Annual Broadway Meows to Purr at Don't Tell Mama 7/16
The 10th Annual Broadway Meows Concert for the Humane Society of New York will be presented at Don't Tell Mama, Monday, July 16th at 7pm. The evening will be comprised of songs by composer/lyricist Seth Bisen-Hersh. Bisen-Hersh will be joined on stage by a phenomenal cast including Lily Ali-Oshatz, Carol Angeli (Miss Saigon), Tee Boyich (Mean Girls), Kally Duling (Fun Home), Dani Granati (Manuel vs. The Statue of Liberty), Teresa Hui (Love Quirks), Riley Krull (Mamma Mia), Miriam Kushel (More to Love), Eloïse Mueller, Sam Poon (The King and I), Joi Danielle Price (Mamma Mia), Dylan Ratell (Chicago), Celia Mei Rubin (Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812), Eric Van Tielen (Les Miserables), Travis Ward-Osborne (Aladdin), Matt Wiercinski (Anastasia), Chelsea Williams (Mamma Mia) and Reji Woods (Rocktopia).
The audience can expect to hear 20 songs from Bisen-Hersh's catalog featuring popular songs from his cabaret acts and musicals: Love Quirks, More to Love and Stanley's Party. The evening will also feature songs from his new musical, The Diamond as Big as The Ritz, an innovative musical based on F. Scott Fitzgerald's novella of the same title about Americans perverse dream for riches as satirized by Fitzgerald in 1922 and as perceived by non-Americans today. The show, written in collaboration with R.C. Staab, had its second industry reading in June.
All the proceeds for the evening will go to the Humane Society of New York, which has "cared for animals in need when illness, injury or homelessness strikes" for over 100 years. The Humane Society saved Bisen-Hersh's cat, Smee's, life in 2009, and this annual charity concert is his way of saying thanks.
