“Broadway Backwards”, the annual musical fundraiser for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, will stream at 8 pm Eastern on Tuesday, March 30. The show is being written and directed by Robert Bartley.
The show will explore how the isolation of the COVID-19 pandemic has specifically affected the LGBTQ community. New performances will be merged with full numbers from previous editions of Broadway Backwards to create an edition that feels distinctly of the moment.

Block, Deborah Cox, Lea Salonga, Matt Bomer, Darren Criss, Ariana DeBose, Robin De Jesús, Cynthia Erivo, Joshua Henry, Cherry Jones, Kelli O’Hara, Jim Parsons, Amy Adams, James Monroe Iglehart, Cheyenne Jackson, L Morgan Lee, Raymond J.
