Black Tie International:
Broadway Stands for Freedom 16th Annual Benefit Concert
 

Broadway Stands for Freedom 16th Annual Benefit Concert

 

THE NYCLU AND ACLU TO HOST 16TH ANNUAL

BROADWAY STANDS UP FOR FREEDOM CONCERT WE THE PEOPLE

 

Alan Cumming to Receive 2018 Freedom Award; Aasif Mandvi to Host

 

WHAT:

The NYCLU (New York Civil Liberties Union) hosts its Annual Broadway Stands Up For Freedom concert We the People, with Alan Cumming to receive the 2018 “Freedom Award” for his contributions as an artist and activist for human rights.

 

On Monday, October 15, 2018, the NYCLU and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) will host a star-studded lineup for Broadway Stands Up for Freedom. This iconic concert was created 16 years ago by aspiring musical theater actors to celebrate the power and beauty of free expression. This year’s theme We the People, was chosen to represent the ACLU and the NYCLU’s goal of bringing people together to take on the toughest civil liberties challenges of our time.

 

This year’s host for the evening is British-American actor, comedian, and former Daily Show correspondent Aasif Mandvi. Aasif Mandvi received an OBIE Award for his critically acclaimed one-man show Sakina's Restaurant, and he was nominated for a Lucille Lortel Award for his performance in the Pulitzer Prize-winning play Disgraced at Lincoln Center. He also serves as an actor/writer/producer on HBO's The Brink.

 

This year’s show will feature both existing Broadway tunes and brand-new songs written exclusively for the concert. The talented group of performers and songwriters include Shaina Taub, hot off a run of the Public Theater’s Twelfth Night, and Erich Bergen, noted for his roles in “Madam Secretary,” Waitress, and Jersey Boys.


Proceeds from the show will benefit the mission of the NYCLU and ACLU to promote and protect the civil rights and liberties of all.

 

The NYCLU is also holding a song contest, inviting submissions for original songs that speak out against racism, hatred, and bigotry. The winner will receive a VIP ticket to the concert, a one-year membership to the ACLU and NYCLU, and a cash prize.
