'Spring Awakening' Girls Join Broadway Backwards 3; Nearly Sold-Out

Six girls from the cast of Spring Awakening will be performing a song from the Tony Award winning show, while honoring and maintaining the gender-bending concept of Broadway Backwards 3. The girls performing include Lilli Cooper, Lea Michele, Eryn Murman, Phoebe Strole, Jenna Ushkowitz and Remy Zaken. This rare opportunity to hear the Tony Award winning cast of Spring Awakening sing one of the signature numbers from the musical is going to be talked about all year!

The concert is Monday, February 4, 2008 from 8-10PM at American Airlines Theatre (227 West 42nd Street). "Broadway Backwards 3" is nearly sold out! The only remaining tickets available for the event are the $250 Orchestra Seats.

Broadway stars will come together for a gender-bending concert featuring show tune favorites on Monday, February 4, 2008. "Broadway Backwards 3" (BB3) will showcase a diverse cast of male singers performing songs traditionally performed by female singers, and vice versa, with all proceeds benefiting the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender (LGBT) Community Center in New York City.

For two years, the theatre community has demonstrated its support for the Center with this one-night-only, star-studded Broadway benefit concert. The evening features classic show tunes with a twist -in past years Betty Buckley delivered a tender rendition of "Some Enchanted Evening" from South Pacific, while Richard Kind sang "Ulla's Song" from The Producers. And who can forget Matt Cavenaugh and Cheyenne Jackson's performance of "We Kiss in a Shadow," named Best Dynamic Duet of 2006 by Playbill.

For the third installment of "Broadway Backwards," the Center heads to Times Square and the Great White Way, as the event is presented at the Roundabout Theatre Company's American Airlines Theatre on 42nd Street. Creator Robert Bartley returns as director, Mark Janas once again serves as musical director, and Seth Rudetsky hosts. The Center also welcomes John Kander and Terrence McNally as event co-chairs.

Scheduled to appear are Neil Patrick Harris (TV's "How I Met Your Mother"); Tony Award Winners Gary Beach (The Producers) and Len Cariou (Sweeney Todd); Tony Award nominees Brooks Ashmanskas (Martin Short: Fame Becomes Me), Charles Busch (The Tale of the Allergist's Wife), Sandy Duncan (TV's "The Hogan Family," Peter Pan), Nancy Dussault (TV's "Too Close For Comfort"), Malcolm Gets (TV's "Caroline in the City," Amour), and Lainie Kazan (My Favorite Year); Cheyenne Jackson (Xanadu, All Shook Up); Kerry Butler (Xanadu); Anthony Rapp (Rent); Ann Harada (Avenue Q); Julie Halston (Gypsy); Michelle Blakely (Annie Get Your Gun); Aaron Lazar (The Light in the Piazza); Tituss Burgess (The Little Mermaid); David Burtka (Gypsy); Tastiskank (Broadway duo of Kate Reinders and Sarah Litzsinger); Karen Mason (Mamma Mia!); Julia Murney (Lennon, Wicked); Jen Colella (High Fidelity); Jose Llana (Spelling Bee); Sierra Boggess (The Little Mermaid); and more.

Tickets are $250; $75 and $125 tickets are sold out. A very limited number of $25 Student Rush tickets will be available one hour before the event starts with a valid and current ID; two (2) tickets per person. There are also a very limited number of $1,500 and $5,000 tickets still available, which give you preferred seating in the Orchestra and an invitation to the exclusive after party, in addition to membership in our Leadership and President's Circle.
