Mean Girls’ Erika Henningsen Teams up with Once on This Island’s Isaac Powell to Perform in Let Me Try That Again: Take 6 Benefit at Feinstein’s/54 Below on October 21st
Broadway’s Erika Henningsen (Mean Girls), Isaac Powell (Once On This Island), and Jennifer Simard (Mean Girls) relive their terrible performances and last year’s belt winner Krysta Rodriguez (Spring Awakening) joins them for a special appearance in Let Me Try That Again: Take 6, a benefit for The Performing Arts Project at Feinstein’s/54 Below on October 21st. Broadway.com’s Susan Blackwell ([title of show]) hosts this evening during which fabulous performers share their most embarrassing moments onstage and then redeem themselves by recreating that moment live. At the end of the evening, the audience will vote on the star performer who most redeemed themselves through their efforts that night.
“This benefit is to remind us all that we all have failed. And failed miserably; in my case in particular,” says event co-founder Steven Pasquale. “But it’s also to remind us about persistence, and focus, and moving forward. And about recognizing how important it is to not take ourselves too seriously. It will be a crazy fun night.” More performers will be added in the coming weeks.
Let Me Try That Again: Take 6 is an annual benefit for The Performing Arts Project: a not-for-profit organization that provides vibrant theatrical training to a generation of young performers. The Performing Arts Project offers dynamic and constantly evolving annual programming, the cornerstone of which are their summer intensives. Funds raised during this benefit will go directly towards scholarships and student programming.
