HOLLYWOOD, CA - August 9, 2018 - Broadway to the Rescue returns to the historic Montalban Theatre on Saturday, October 13, 2018 after last year's triumphant, sold-out, star-studded night. Broadway's hottest, award-winning performers will once again come together for this spectacular benefit to help the homeless in the Los Angeles area with ALL proceeds going to Hope of the Valley, a mission that does extraordinary work for those in need. Tickets range from $25 to $1,000 and can be purchased online here: BroadwayToTheRescue.com/tickets.
Last year, legendary Broadway talent ignited the stage recreating performances from such shows as Wicked, Hamilton, Hairspray, Cats, Hair, Rent, Les Miserables and Little Shop of Horrors. This year, Broadway to the Rescue (BTTR) goes DISNEY with incredible performers creating show-stopping numbers from your favorite Walt Disney musicals including The Little Mermaid, Mary Poppins, Frozen, Hercules, Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, The Princess and the Frog and more.
Created by Broadway/TV and film actor Michael-Leon Wooley (Grace and Frankie, The Princess and the Frog) in memoriam of a friend who was a devoted advocate of the homeless, BTTR began in a small club in North Hollywood and has raised over $100,000 for Hope of the Valley (HOTV). “I served lunches at HOTV and saw their dedication to the homeless in LA”, said Wooley, Creator and Producer of of the show. “The mayor has declared a state of emergency and LA is now the unsheltered homeless capitol in the country. Given the long-standing tradition of Broadway giving back, I asked performers to step up and raise awareness (and MONEY) for the cause and THEY DID”.
For almost ten years, HOTV has operated nine facilities including cold weather shelters and transitional youth facilities that provide crucial services to those in need. "We are incredibly honored and grateful that Michael and his colleagues are once again joining the fight against poverty and homelessness in Los Angeles”, said Ken Craft, Founder and CEO of Hope of the Valley. “For the past four years, Broadway to the Rescue has put on a world class show in LA and generated much needed awareness and resources in the fight against homelessness.”
