Broadway Stars Come to Abrons Arts Center

A high point of our week was a special night at the Abrons Art Center Monday — a spectacular concert featuring Broadway star Bebe Neuwirth and a few of her (very talented) friends. The event was a benefit for Equine Advocates and Henry Street Settlement.

Abrons Arts Center Benefit with Bebe Neuwirth Oct. 3

Actress Bebe Neuwirth and a group of Broadway colleagues will give special performances at the Abrons Arts Center next month to benefit a unique partnership that teaches inner-city kids about horses.

The Oct. 3 event will help Abrons’ parent organization, Henry Street Settlement, fund a program it runs with Equine Advocates Rescue and Sanctuary upstate in Chatham, N.Y. The sanctuary rescues horses from abusive and neglectful situations, and children from Henry Street’s programs take field trips to learn about and interact with new four-footed friends.

In addition to Neuwirth, the evening’s performers include Brenda Braxton, Jason Daniely, Dontee Kiehn, Marin Mazzie, Roger Rees and Karen Ziemba.

Tickets start at $250 and are partially tax-deductible. Find details and buy tickets on the Abrons website.
