Broadway stars come together for autism benefit concert

May 01, 2018

On June 25, 2018 at 7:30pm in New York City, the Broadway community will come together for a fantastic one-night-only performance, "Arts for Autism," at Broadway's Gershwin Theatre to benefit Autism Speaks! Tony Award nominee Christopher Jackson will serve as host for the unique event. 

In the early 2000s Jackson learned that his son was diagnosed with autism. A regular supporter of Autism Speaks, Jackson tells us, “If you have met a person with autism, you have been blessed.” 

Other Broadway performers who have signed on to participate in this year’s event include Tony Award nominee Max von Essen currently starring in Anastasia, Kara Lindsay, who originated the role of Katherine Plumber in Newsies, Libby Servais, standby for Glinda in Wicked, and Colton Ryan from the original cast of Dear Evan Hansen.

They will be joined by young artists from across North America who have auditioned for the opportunity to perform on a Broadway stage and support this amazing cause. 

Ticket are on sale now here.
