Benefit Features the Touring Cast of 'An American in Paris'

BY BTL STAFF

Cast members of the national touring production of "An American In Paris" (performing at the Detroit Opera House Nov. 28 - Dec. 10) will perform in a special concert to benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS and Ferndale's Blessings in a Backpack - a "neighbor-helping-neighbor" program that is designed to help bridge the gap of the nutritional needs of children from the Ferndale School District.

Detroit "Concert for a Cure" starts at 7 p.m. on Dec. 4 at The Loving Touch, 22634 Woodward Ave. in Ferndale. Doors open at 6 p.m. for the 18 and over event. Guests attending can support the cause as they enjoy an intimate evening featuring cabaret-style performances by cast members of "An American in Paris," as they perform some of their favorite songs and familiar Broadway tunes.

"An American in Paris" is the new Tony Award-winning musical about an American soldier, a mysterious French girl, and an indomitable European city, each yearning for a new beginning in the aftermath of war.

The evening, hosted by local drag superstar, Sabin, will also feature live and silent auctions and a cash bar. Admission for the event is $25 in advance or at the door. All funds raised at the event will benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS and Blessings in a Backpack.
