From Broadway With Love

03:01 PM Wednesday 1/9/13 |   |

Broadway producer Van Dean and composer Brett Boles have organized a benefit concert for Newtown, Conn., to show support to the grieving community after last month’s Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. The lineup is made up of Broadway performers and composers.

The concert, dubbed “From Broadway with Love: A Benefit Concert For Sandy Hook,” came to be after Dean reached out to friends and colleagues in the Broadway community by posting the idea for the event on Facebook. He received more than 100 responses in two hours, according to USA Today, which notes that both Dean and Boles are from the Newtown area.

“From Broadway with Love” is scheduled Jan. 28 in nearby Waterbury, Conn., at the Palace Theater, which is donating use of the venue. Donations will help cover other expenses.

Here’s what the lineup looks like so far: Linda Eder, Brian Stokes Mitchell, Stephen Schwartz, Nikki Blonsky and Seth Rudetsky. Monkees member Micky Dolenz, who has performed in musicals and plays including the Elton John/Tim Rice Tony Award-winning musical “Aida,” will also be there along with actor/performer Richard Kind.

USA Today reports that organizers are still working to confirm more headliners. They are also looking for corporate sponsors.

Families of those killed in the shooting, first responders and the Sandy Hook Elementary School community will enjoy the concert for free and sit in the front of the orchestra section.

The general public will have the chance to purchase a limited number of tickets, ranging from $50 to $250.   

All proceeds from the concert will be donated to the United Way of Western Connecticut’s Sandy Hook School Support Fund to benefit the Newtown community.

“I had been watching the coverage and knew I had to do something positive," Dean said, according to USA Today. “Immediately, a light bulb went off.”
