We are thrilled to share about an amazing benefit concert starring Sting and Patti LuPone and hosted by Jane Lynch on Monday, September 15th at the Gershwin Theatre in New York at 8:00PM.
Uprising of Love: A Benefit Concert for Global Equality stars 16-time Grammy Award-winner Sting and two-time Tony and Grammy Award-winner Patti LuPone. Hosted by the hilarious Jane Lynch from Glee, the evening also features performances from Tony and Grammy Award-winner Billy Porter; the cast of WICKED; the cast of ONCE; Matt Gould, Griffin Matthews, and the cast of Witness Uganda; members of the cast of I Am Harvey Milk; country-music star Chely Wright; Bollywood star Celina Jaitly; a Grammy Award-winning surprise musical guest, and more.
Written by Academy Award-winning Dustin Lance Black (Milk), executive producers Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Godspell, Pippin) and Bruce Cohen (American Beauty, Milk, Silver Linings Playbook) have brought together this all-star cast for a one-night-only show that will weave together stories and performances from activists and musical artists from around the world.
The net proceeds raised from the show will go to Fueling the Frontlines, a campaign by the Astraea Lesbian Foundation for Justice, the only philanthropic organization in the United States solely dedicated to advancing LGBTI rights globally.
