On the eve of Valentine’s Day, Kara Lindsay, currently starring in Disney’s “Newsies” on Broadway, will be joined on-stage by her husband Kevin Massey (Memphis), her college best friend Kirsten Scott (Big Fish), her original “Newsies” co-star, Jeremy Jordan (Newsies), his wife, Ashley Spencer (Rock of Ages), Santino Fontana (Frozen), his girlfriend Jessica Hershberg (Cinderella), Drew Gehling (On A Clear Day), his wife Sara Jean Ford (The Phantom of the Opera), and musical director Benjamin Rauhala in a celebration of Broadway romance, both on and off-stage. “A Very Broadway Valentine’s Day” will also feature bluegrass trio ‘Shubert Alley,’ featuring Kevin Massey, his brother Patrick Massey, and Jamison Scott (Spider-Man). They will be accompanied by Rauhala on the keys, and Charlie Rosen (One Man, Two Guvnors), who will alternate on bass, acoustic guitar, and drums. This is one concert no hopeless romantic should miss!
All proceeds from the evening will be donated to Hope4Gavin, to support two-year-old Gavin Strand in his battle with cancer. Gavin is the son of musical director Rauhala’s cousins Katie and Dan Strand, and was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia on the day after his first birthday. He is in remission but continues to receive chemotherapy, and takes over 100 oral medications a month. He will finish treatment in July of 2014.
