"Opening Act" Benefit To Star Christopher Jackson, Jasmine Cephas-Jones, and More!
by Brookelynn Mason
#EduHam isn't the only way for inner city schools to participate in the theater community. At the 11th Annual Play Reading, A Night of YES!, Opening Act will be raising money for their after-school and summer theater programs for underserved New York City public high schools.
In addition to student performances, the cast will feature faves such as Hamilton's Christopher Jackson and Jasmine Cephas-Jones, Moana's Auli'i Cravalho, Uzo Aduba from Orange Is The New Black and more. The performance will be directed by the legendary Kenny Leon, fresh off The Wiz Live! and Hairspray Live!
Oh, and did we mention HAMILTON TICKETS?! Opening Act is running a $20 Hamilton ticket raffle to any of their shows (Chicago, New York, OR Tour!) to raise money for their programs. How many times do you get a chance to see Hamilton for only $20? Never. The answer is never.
A Night of YES! will be hosted at New World Stages on April 25th.
