Broadway Stars Join Annual Earth Day Benefit Concert - Broadway Recycled

AT HAND THEATRE COMPANY's annual Earth Day concert, BROADWAY RECYCLED, will take place this year on Monday, April 25th at 7pm and 9:30pm at Joe's Pub. The concert of songs cut from musicals – songs that shouldn't go to waste - benefits the Broadway Green Alliance and At Hand Theatre Company.

This year's BROADWAY RECYCLED concert will feature performances by Sean Bradford (The Lion King), Blake Daniel (Spring Awakening), Katrina Rose Dideriksen (Hairspray), Gideon Glick (Spiderman: Turn Off The Dark), Annie Golden (Xanadu), Jessica Lee Goldyn (A Chorus Line), Jeff Hiller (Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson), Natalie Joy Johnson (Legally Blonde), Adam Kantor (Rent), Andy Karl (Legally Blonde), Andrew Kober (Hair), Liz Larsen (Starmites), MK Lawson (Bloodsong of Love), Tracy McDowell (Rent), Andy Mientus (Spring Awakening), Kevin Michael Murphy (Awesome '80s Prom), Kate Pazakis (South Pacific), Vanessa Ray (Hair), Megan Reinking (People In The Picture), Kate Rockwell (Legally Blonde), Lance Rubin (Things To Ruin), A.J. Shively (La Cage Aux Folles), and Taylor Trensch (Little Miss Sunshine).

Concertgoers at BROADWAY RECYCLED can expect to hear songs cut from Hair, Side Show, Rent, Chicago, Legally Blonde, Spring Awakening, Little Shop of Horrors, The Boy from Oz, Bloodsong of Love, Guys and Dolls, Tick Tick Boom, Subways Are For Sleeping, Betty Boop, and Working!

The concert will be directed by Jennifer Ashley Tepper with musical direction by Julie McBride. Last year's performance featured the original cast of [title of show] singing the now infamous and complete version of “The Tony Award Song," un-recorded Dolly Parton songs cut from 9 to 5, an Altar Boyz number too offensive to make it out of an early workshop, and Anthony Rapp and Annaleigh Ashford singing a song they performed in the NYMF production of Feeling Electric... before it became Next to Normal.
