The evening will pair theater hopefuls with the Broadway professionals that have inspired them to join and/or stay in the crazy life of show business. The show will consist of songs from across the musical theatre canon that speaks to the LBGTQ+ experience. Think Bare. Think RENT. Think Falsettos. Think of some gender swapped famous duets, too!
