According to press notes, "On Nov. 7, 2013 the Philippines was hit by Super Typhoon Haiyan, the deadliest natural disaster on record. It took the lives of over 6,000 people and displaced over 4 million people. The need for assistance and relief is still essential. So with this in mind, Broadway and Off-Broadway singers and NYC based comedians present an evening of entertainment to raise awareness and much needed funds for the relief effort."
Produced by Vanessa Dawson and hosted by Chelsea Piers, proceeds from An Evening of Music and Comedy benefit The Red Cross; a live auction will be held at intermission.
