The Make-A-Wish Foundation makes its Broadway debut when 2007 Tony Award Winning Actress Julie White returns to the Broadway stage to host "Broadway Sings The Phone Book," a fundraiser gala concert for the Metro New York Chapter of the organization. "Broadway Sings the Phone Book" will play Studio 54 on November 12, 2007 at 7PM.

Demonstrating the popular expression "I'd listen to 'so-and-so" sing the phone book," producers Jonathan Tessero, Sarah Melissa Rotker, and Joe Tropia have lined up a fun array of Broadway stars singing their trademark songs... with the lyrics replaced either mad lib style or with names from pages ripped randomly from the phone book. A third performance option includes a variation of the title where performances are crafted with words from pages ripped from a dictionary.

While no on-sale date has been announced for the performance's 900 public tickets which range from $40 to $110, the producers began their private sponsorship ticket package sales last week. Ranging from $500 ($310 is tax deductible) for a premium orchestra seat, gift bag, and sponsorship program credit to $2,000 ($1,575 is tax deductible) for a front row ticket, gift bag, autographed window card, sponsorship credit, VIP room access, and the opportunity to fill out the mad lib forms or rip the pages from the dictionary or phone book used (and receive them back autographed), less than 70 of private sponsorship tickets are being offered. Traditionally, individual tickets do not carry a tax deductible incentive, however a percentage of each individual ticket will also be tax deductible for use in employer sponsored matching gift programs.
