Girls, Jo, Rhapsody, My Dear), Michael Kooman (Dani Girl, The Noteworthy Life of Howard Barnes, Homemade Fusion), Zoe Sarnak (The Quad, Mixtape, A Lasting Impression), Sam Salmond (Eighty-Sixed, Uncool: the Party, Mother Me and The Monsters), Daniel Lincoln (The Girly Show, The Broadway Brouhaha, The Stonewall Singalong), Bobby Cronin ('Til Death Do Us Part, Mary & Max, Sunset City), Andrew J.

Among those lending their dynamic voices to the cause, are Anastacia McClesky (The Book of Mormon, Violet, Hair, Tarzan), Billy Harrigan Tighe (Pippin, The Book of Mormon), Javier Ignacio (Side Show), Carla Stickler (Wicked), and Lilli Cooper (Spring Awakening, Wicked, SpongeBob). To round out this star-studded evening, Loren Allred (The Voice) will be joining the roster.
"Hear your favorite songs, sung by your favorite stars. Bring open hearts, and maybe a few tissues, as we come together in support of those lost and those affected by the mass shooting at Pulse in Orlando. The New York Theater Community stands strong with our LGBTQ Brothers and Sisters, wherever you are," says Robin Sokoloff, Executive Director of Loft227.
