Broadway Backwards, the annual benefit concert celebrating the LGBTQ+ community via songs from the musical theatre, will return to Broadway’s New Amsterdam Theatre, current home of Disney's Aladdin, March 13 at 8 PM. 

Produced by Broadway Cares, the evening benefits the theatrical nonprofit and New York City’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center. Guest performers will be announced at a later date.

Broadway Backwards creator Robert Bartley will once again direct, joined by associate director Lauren Gemelli. Bartley, Mimi Quillin, Adam Roberts, and Luis Salgado are the show’s choreographers with musical supervision by Ted Arthur and Mary-Mitchell Campbell. Jeff Brancato serves as production stage manager.

The event began as a grassroots concert performed at The Center in 2006. Last year, Backwards returned to the New Amsterdam after a two-year pause due to the pandemic. The standing-room-only return raised a record $758,582, besting the previous record set by 2021’s virtual edition.

Tickets, which start at $100 with sponsorship packages and VIP tickets also available, can be purchased by visiting
