Theatre LA Cares (Susan Grace, Producer) has announced the second annual Twisted Broadway fundraiser for the Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund. Directed by Karon Kearney with musical direction by Michael Lavine, the fun begins at 1:30pm on Sunday, April 14, at Upstairs at Vitello’s, 4349 Tujunga Avenue in Studio City, 91604.
The cast includes (in alphabetical order) Eydie Alyson, Joshua Finkel, Gabi Garcia, Susan Grace, jackbenny, Mark D. Kaufman, Linda Kerns, Ashley Fox Linton, Tod Macofsky, Kevin McMahon, Daniel David Stewart, and Diane Vincent, with more to be announced. All appearances are subject to availability.
Twisted Broadway promises to be an irreverent afternoon offering your favorite Broadway tunes turned upside down and inside out.
Said producer Susan Grace, “For more than 15 years I’ve dreamed of presenting benefit concerts in LA. Having spent all of my adult life with a rabid interest in re-interpreting and twisting Broadway songs out of context, I hoped audiences would respond to an irreverent but loving tribute to musical theatre, while making a substantive difference in the world. I’m proud to say that last year’s premiere event was a rousing success!”
Theatre LA Cares, LA’s newest producing company, is committed to empowerment, healing, and dignity, and robustly supports Time’s Up so that someday soon no one will ever have to say, “me, too” again. Time’s Up is a unified call for change from women in entertainment and for women everywhere. From movie sets to farm fields to boardrooms alike, Time’s Up envisions nationwide leadership that reflects the world in which we live. Donations are gratefully accepted.
Tickets for Twisted Broadway are $40 in advance, and $50 at the door on the day of the show. Doors open at 12pm for cocktail and lunch service (minimums apply). Purchase tickets online or by phone at (818) 769-0905.
