The concerts, also featuring stars from & Juliet, Harmony, Here Lies Love, and more, will be held in Manhattan and the Bronx.
Broadway Forever, a series of free pop-up concerts and community service opportunities, will return for a second year with events in Manhattan and the Bronx.
The 11 AM concerts—set for September 17 at Plaza de Las Americas in Manhattan (651 West 175th Street) and September 24 at Lou Gehrig Plaza in the Bronx (East 161st Street)—will feature performances and appearances from Casey Cott (Moulin Rouge! The Musical), Charity Angél Dawson (Waitress), Jordan Fisher (Dear Evan Hansen), Olivia Holt (Chicago), Cheyenne Jackson (Into the Woods), Christopher Jackson (Hamilton), Alexis Michelle (RuPaul’s Drag Race), Adam Pascal (Rent), and Jelani Remy (Back To The Future), as well as current cast members from & Juliet (Rachel Webb), Chicago (Lili Thomas), Harmony (Sean Bell, Danny Kornfeld, Zal Owen, Eric Peters, Blake Roman, Steven Telsey), Here Lies Love (Aaron Alcaraz and Jaygee Macapugay), Moulin Rouge! The Musical (Jacqueline B. Arnold, Heather Makalani, David Merino and Kelsey Orem), and Some Like It Hot (Kayla Pecchioni). Not all artists will perform at both events.
In addition to the concerts, attendees will also have the opportunity to sign up for future community service opportunities, which will be
coordinated by New York Cares and their partner organizations. (On September 24, just a few blocks away from the concert, volunteers will gather at 9 AM to revitalize Joyce Kilmer Park and Franz Siegel Park in the South Bronx. To register, click here.)
“NY Forever honors New York City’s artists who shape its soul and the communities fueling its spirit,” says Richard Mumby, founding board member of NY Forever. “We are thrilled to partner with City National Bank once again to bring Broadway Forever into two vibrant neighborhoods. These concerts merge some of Broadway’s greatest talents with exciting community service activations, epitomizing our city’s essence. We celebrate not just talent, but tenacity—saluting artists and the resilient community bonds that define us.”
NY Forever, in partnership with City National Bank and the New York City Department of Transportation, present the events produced and staged by 6W Entertainment, with additional support from New York Cares and the Times Square Alliance.
