Lena Hall, Jessie Mueller, More Set for Climate Change Benefit Concert in NYC
It’s time to save Planet Earth—and Broadway is answering the call! Tony winners Lena Hall and Jessie Mueller, Tony nominee Anika Larsen, Olivier nominee Rachel Tucker, and more will sing in the one-night-only benefit concert, Stars in the House for Climate Action.
The performance will take place January 23 at 9:30 PM ET at The Green Room 42 with a live stream ticket option also available. The fundraiser will donate proceeds to Broadway Green Alliance, which serves as co-producer alongside Stars in the House creators Seth Rudetsky and James Wesley.
In addition to hit Broadway songs and behind-the-scenes stories, the event will provide critical action steps that audiences can take to combat the climate crisis. Like many Stars in the House events, the evening will combine music, community, and education to mobilize a better future.
Also set to perform are Mara Davi (A Chorus Line), Jenn Gambatese (Mrs. Doubtfire), Tamar Greene (Hamilton), Laurel Harris (Jagged Little Pill), Jana Djenne Jackson (Almost Famous), Apollo Levine (MJ The Musical), Jacques C. Smith (The Book of Mormon), Alexandra Socha (Head Over Heels), and Ta-Tynisa Wilson (Hamilton).
Jenn Gambatese, Anika Larsen, and Molly Braverman are creative producers for the event while David Katz is the technical advisor and Lauren Mandras serves as the communications lead.
“Sometimes the stars (in the house) align and people come together to share their time and talents toward breathing more love into the world!” says Jenn Gambatese. “We all believe that when enough of us come together with inspired ideas and small actions wonderful things can happen for our planet.”
“It feels wicked awesome to be partnering with my ole pal Gamby to put together a fun, fancy concert with Seth and James, who do these concerts better than anyone,” adds Larsen. “The BGA has helped me go from feeling helpless and hopeless about my kids’ planet, to feeling helpful and hopeful, and I want to spread that optimism!”
