Next Monday (November 11, 2013) at 7:30pm, Rockers On Broadway will celebrate it's 20th anniversary at NYC's (le) Poisson Rouge.
An all-star cast of Broadway's finest including Tony Vincent (American Idiot, JCS, We Will Rock You, RENT), Donnie Kehr (Jersey Boys, The Who’s TOMMY, Aida), Norm Lewis (Porgy and Bess, The Little Mermaid, The Who’s TOMMY), Lesli Margherita (Matilda), Alice Ripley (Next to Normal, Side Show, The Who’s TOMMY), Micky Dolenz (“The Monkees”), Constantine Maroulis (Jekyl & Hyde, Rock of Ages, American Idol), and many others will be backed by a full band, performing numbers from the event's first two decades. The evening will also include special performances by Micky Dolenz and honoree Des McAnuff.
This historic event is significant because it honors two-time Tony Award winner Des McAnuff and rock legend Pete Townshend, the visionaries behind the award winning production of The Who’s TOMMY, the groundbreaking musical that truly brought rock & roll to Broadway and inspired cast member Donnie Kehr to create Rockers.
Proceeds from this years's event will benefit The ASCAP Foundation's Children Will Listen Program, The Broadway Dreams Foundation and Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.
So, if you're in the US, come out and support Tony and this FANTASTIC organisaton next week!! It's guaranteed to be a BRILLIANT night! (ESPECIALLY as Tony's rockin' the roof off, right?!?) Check out the Event set up on Tony's Facebook Page to see other "TV" fans who are ALREADY planning to attend. If you're coming, let others know too, by hitting the "Join" button. If there's something I've learned thru the years of running this site, it's that Tony's fans are the most amazing group of people--so warm and friendly, so don't be shy to say "Hi" if you recognise a felow TeamTV supporter at the gig. It's all about UNITY and COMMUNITY--we're ONE worldwide network of Tony Vincent support. And, I love that!
