Broadway for Reproductive Rights (BFRR) holds its inaugural concert benefiting the New York Abortion Access Fund October 9 at Green Room 42 at 9:30 PM.
The concert is directed by Samantha Joy Pearlman and features Taylor Iman Jones (Groundhog Day, Head Over Heels), Anthony Lee Medina (Hamilton), Sarah Haines (Hamilton), Tess Primack (Fiddler on the Roof), Dawn L. Troupe (1776), Imani Pearl Williams (1776), Julia Bain (Waitress tour), Noa Luz Barenblat (Fiddler on the Roof tour), Denali Bennett, Kelsey Anne Brown (Muny’s Legally Blonde), Kyra Kennedy (Waitress tour, Mystic Pizza), Maya Musial (The Virtuous Life of Joseph Andrews), Samantha Joy Pearlman (Chasing Rainbows), and Aveena Sawyer (Off-Broadway Little Shop of Horrors).
BFRR is a new artist collective in which members of the theatre community advocate and raise money for reproductive rights organizations.
"In a post Roe world, one of the most radical actions we can take is to support women seeking abortions," said BFRR founder Caroline Gorland in an earlier statement. "As this is our first concert, we wanted to start with an organization that’s close to home, but also provides support to women seeking abortions from all over the country... 100% of the proceeds from this concert will go to benefit the New York Abortion Access Fund, which supports anyone who is unable to pay fully for an abortion and is living in or traveling to New York State by providing financial assistance and connections to other resources. NYAAF is a part of the National Network of Abortion Funds, a non profit organization that supports 90 Abortion Funds nationwide."
The concert is produced by Gorland with Monica Rodriguez serving as associate producer. Trevor Pierce is the evening's music director.
