Never underestimate the power of a pronoun! With women singing men’s songs and men singing women’s – and the original pronouns intact – a song can mean something entirely new.

It started in 2006 when twenty Broadway performers came together to help raise awareness and funds for at-risk gay youth, HIV prevention and support, gay and lesbian families-to-be, and other programs of The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center on 13th Street. The event featured members of the Broadway community singing reversed gender songs. But that night, something very special happened. The SRO crowd realized that this wasn’t just about men singing women’s songs and vice versa. It was a chance for that audience to see and hear some of the most treasured songs of the Great White Way in a whole light – a more inclusive light.

In 2010, Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS and The Center join forces to present the fifth edition of BROADWAY BACKWARDS benefiting both organizations. BROADWAY BACKWARDS 5 will feature two dozen stars including:

Nick Adams (A Chorus Line)
Martine Allard (The Tap Dance Kid, Tony Award nom.)
