Let Us Entertain You, a frontline worker tribute to the theatre industry, debuts on Playbill September 23, featuring performances by Tony and Emmy winner Billy Porter, Megan Hilty and Brian Gallagher, and Lorna Luft, with dozens more Broadway stars making cameos. Check it out above beginning at 7 PM ET.
The project, presented by Brave Hearts for Broadway to benefit The Actors Fund, was conceived by registered nurse, playwright, and producer Michael E. Merritt. Virtually uniting over 120 people from 11 different countries to support and uplift theatre professionals, Merritt organized The Frontline Choir and Friends to create the special video.
