The 5th Annual Broadway Meows Concert, benefiting the Humane Society of New York, is presented July 22 at Don't Tell Mama.
Produced by Dennis Fowler, the evening is directed by Melissa Meli. Heather Ber is the stage manager.
The performance, which begins at 7 PM, comprises the songs of composer-lyricist Seth Bisen-Hersh.

Ellis, Kimberly Faye Greenberg, Amy Griffin, Teresa Hui, Lara Janine, Aaron Keller, Kaitlin Kiyan, Miriam Kushel, Melissa Mitchell, Rori Nogee, Cassie Okenka, David Perlman, Adam Shapiro, Stacy Shirk and Haley Swindal.

All the proceeds from the evening go to the Humane Society of New York, which has "cared for animals in need when illness, injury or homelessness strikes" for over 100 years. The Humane Society saved the life of Bisen-Hersh's cat, Smee, 2009, and this annual benefit is his way of saying thanks.
