What They’re Saying:

  • Thomas Schumacher, President & Producer Disney Theatrical Productions: “For 16 months, New Yorkers have been eager to start going to the theatre again. The Lion King and Aladdin return to Broadway in September, but these four concerts allow us to welcome fans back to Broadway even sooner and give us a chance to raise much-needed funds to support the heroic work being done by the remarkable staff at The Actors Fund. We cannot wait to return to the exhilaration of musical theatre. For the first time in forever, we actually can.”
  • Joseph Benincasa, President and CEO of The Actors Fund: “Over the past 25 years, the casts, crews and staff of Disney Theatrical Productions have been such valued members of The Actors Fund extended family. Their unwavering partnership has helped promote and support our many programs and services that provide vital assistance for our performing arts and entertainment colleagues, who are in need now more than ever. Being part of the reopening celebration of The New Amsterdam Theatre with these special concerts means that even more people will be able to get the help they need."  
  • Michael James Scott: “There aren’t enough adjectives to describe how excited and honored I am to get be part of this historic reopening of Broadway and the legendary New Amsterdam Theatre. Bringing this feel-good concert to NYC with some of my closest friends and my DOB family is a dream come true. Did I mention I’m excited?!”
