In these strange and somewhat desperate times, the world needs more badass women.
In this one night only concert event, members of the Broadway community along with some employees of Refinery29, the leading name in women’s digital media, will join forces to raise money for those devastated by Hurricane Harvey and Irma. A portion of proceeds will also go to Broadway Care: Equity Fights Aids.
The Badass Women of Broadway will be a collection of songs from some of the theatre’s most iconic heroines. We celebrate the mothers, the daughters, the love struck, the heartbroken, the fighters, the pacifists, and the multi dimensional female characters that motivate us to own our power.
Badass Women of Broadway is produced by Hannah Cecille, an employee of Refinery 29 who was last seen producing Broadway Kidz Backwards at Feinstein’s 54 Below.
Badass Women of Broadway will feature some of Refinery29’s staff members including Hannah Cecille, Lucie Fink, Patricia Beam, Zachary Clause, and members of the Broadway community. Starring Coco Cohn, Hillary Porter, Kianee Truvillion, Grace Leszynski, Katie Goffman, Kalilah Black, Sahar Milani, Danyelle Williamson, Aisha Carpenter, Lily Ramras, Ally Veloudis, and Carrie Berk.
