The Erie Playhouse was founded over 100 years ago with a focus on performing quality live theatre with and for the Erie community. Kate Neubert-Lechner, executive director of the Playhouse, said, “The arts are deeply struggling across the world during this time. This outpouring of support from the Broadway community for the Erie Playhouse is both humbling and unprecedented. We will never be able to find the right words of gratitude for all of this love sent our way.”
The fundraiser is created by Julian Decker, Mike Karns, Jim Wilhelm, and Jeff Potter.
The benefit concert is give-what-you-can, with donations accepted at EriePlayhouse.org/Donate. The concert will broadcast via Facebook Live, on YouTube, and on the Erie Playhouse website.
