WOMEN OF COLOR ON BROADWAY will be presented on Wednesday, October 21.
On Wednesday, October 21, ALL ARTS will premiere Women of Color on Broadway as part of its House Seats series. With theater doors remaining closed for months to come, this new House Seats concert special features songs from popular Broadway musicals, including "Hamilton," "The Wiz," "The Band's Visit," "Once On This Island," and many more, by Broadway women of color. Performers include Kimberly Marable ("Hadestown"), Kayla Davion ("The Tina Turner Musical"), Aléna Watters ("The CHER Show"), Darlesia Cearcy ("Once On This Island"), Lianah Sta. Ana ("Miss Saigon"), Kuhoo Verma ("Medusa the Musical"), Genesis Collado ("Over Here!"), Barbara Douglas, and Vanisha Gould.
Filmed February 10 at the Great Hall at The Cooper Union, this special one-night-only concert was presented by Women of Color on Broadway, a non-profit dedicated to supporting women of African, Latin, and Asian descent pursuing careers in musical theater. The evening honored Tony Award-winners LaChanze and Melba Moore and presented each of them with the organization's Purple Crystal Honorary Award, which celebrates the heroines of African, Latin, and Asian descent who paved the way for the next generation of women of color in theater. Moore also performs "I Got Love" from the musical "Purlie."
