NYC - Marin Mazzie’s Sunflower Power Hour - Benefit For Cancer Support Community

Marin Mazzie

Marin Mazzie

Jason Danieley hosts an evening of uplifting performances by some of Broadway’s brightest stars as they pay tribute to Marin Mazzie’s achievements and advocacy. Proceeds will benefit the Cancer Support Community (CSC). CSC is a global nonprofit that provides $50 million in free support and navigation services for patients and their loved ones each year.

One September 13, 2018, the Broadway legend passed away from ovarian cancer. A powerhouse performer and fierce patient advocate, Marin served as a CSC Champion. “Marin was deeply committed to using her platform to shed light on the multitude of challenges facing people living with cancer diagnosis,” Jason said. “Marin and I became CSC Champions because we strongly believed in its mission to help all people impacted by cancer by providing free services to cancer patients and their loved ones. Like Marin, this benefit will uplift, inspire, and empower.”

In addition to Jason, the following performers will also be a part of the tribute to Marin*: Liz Callaway, Victor Garber, Howard McGillin, Debra Monk, David Hyde Pierce, Karen Ziemba

Those unable to attend the benefit concert can honor Marin’s legacy by making a donation to CSC. As a special thank you, a gift of $25 or more will receive a limited-edition sunflower power wrist band in memory of the actress’s love of sunflowers which were an inspiration to her during her treatment.

To learn more about CSC, please visit www.cancersupportcommunity.org

All tickets include a three-course prix fixe, Wine, Beer, and Soda.
*Please note that all performances are subject to change at any time.

Free Community Event! Bay Street Theater & Guild Hall Present Under the Stars: The Romeo & Juliet Project

5735-romeo-juliet-slider-d2.jpg

“The Romeo and Juliet Project” reinvents the story of our star-crossed lovers using the power of Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo’s music to remind us what happens when we forget the impact of love, equality, and acceptance. Written by Bradley Bredeweg and directed by Scott Schwartz, the show brings us into the modern, war-torn metropolis of Verona as the newly-minted Chancellor Paris takes control and promises to return the city to its traditional roots and destroy the progressive resistance. This new musical is an intricate weaving of Benatar and Giraldo’s deeply emotional rock anthems exploring the question - what does it take to regain a world where peace is possible?

The cast includes: Alex Nee as Romeo (National Tours: American Idiot, Once Regional Theater: Cabaret); Salena Qureshi as Juliet) Netflix: The Society, Film: Spider-man: Homecoming (movie) TV: Madam Secretary); Andréa Burns as Madam Capulet (Broadway: On Your Feet, In The Heights, The Nance National Tour: The Full Monty); Darlesia Cearcy as Madam Montague (Broadway: Book of Mormon, Once On This Island, National Tour: Ragtime); Matt Doyle as Paris (Broadway: Book of Mormon, Spring Awakening, Bye Bye Birdie); Howard McGillin as The Friar (Broadway: Phantom of the Opera, Kiss of the Spider Women, The Secret Garden); Jordan Kai Burnett as Benvolia, Carson Higgins as Tybalt, Natalie Masini as Nura, and Jamar Williams as Mercutio. The ensemble includes: Liam Allen, Griffin Binnicker, Talia Cohen, Nicolas Gonzales, Avery Norris, and Joya Richmond.

Judy McLane and Howard McGillin

Judy McLane and Howard McGillin

The lead-up to the Tony Awards, set for June 11, is filled with luncheons, cocktails, and various photo ops. This in addition to the eight shows a week often required of those whose productions are still being staged. The show must go on, as they say, and the last big hurrah is the Tony Honors Cocktail Party, held Monday at the Sofitel hotel in New York.

As part of this special recognition, Judy McLane and Howard McGillin performed a song from Chess (“Someone Else’s Story”) and The Phantom of the Opera (“The Music of the Night”), respectively. By the end of the last ballad, several could be seen wiping tears, including Dear Evan Hansen’s Tony–nominated actress Rachel Bay Jones.
