Today, Luner on Theatre brings you the exciting news that Broadway performers and Miss Staten Island will team up next week to present a one-night only concert, LOVE GOES ON, celebrating female composers and suicide prevention!
LOVE GOES ON: A Concert Celebrating Female Composers is set to hit the stage of The Cutting Room next week for one night only as Broadway performers and current Miss Staten Island, Heather Wolf, come together to celebrate female composers and the suicide prevention organization, You Can NOT Be Replaced®. The performance will take place at The Rutting Room Monday April 25th, 2016 with doors opening at 6:30 PM before a 7:30 PM performance. Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door, plus food & drink minimum. The concert will be hosted Heather Wolf (Pictured Above). The evening is being co-produced by Allie Dufford and Sammy Lopez. Ryan Cantwell is musical director with Chris Luner as Stage Manager.

The concert will include performers seen recently on and off Broadway including Alex Boniello (Deaf West’s Spring Awakening & Pictured Left), Andi Alhadeff (Jasper in Deadland), Belinda Allyn (Allegiance), Dawn Cantwell (Wicked), Gabrielle McClinton (Pippin), Jenny Ashman (Sleep No More), Lee Slobotkin (Wicked), Michael Ryan (Newsies), and Ragan Pharris (Waitress). Anna Ty Bergman, Melanie Brook, and Kerri George from The Mashup Project as well as Angela Travino, Sydney Patrick, and Izzie Flores from RANGE a cappella will also perform during the evening.
You Can NOT Be Replaced® was created in 2012 after the loss of seven students from the high school of the organization’s co-founders. Beginning with just 500 passable wristbands for local students, the organization today has passed along 40,000+ not only throughout the United States but Canada, the United Kingdom and Australia. The organization seeks to reduce factors that contribute to young people in crisis and works to empower them and their families to improve relationships, communication and trust. It organization prides itself on encouraging people to simplify and redefine success.
Heather Wolf (Pictured Left), who currently holds the title of Miss Staten Island, began working with the suicide prevention organization You Can NOT Be Replaced® after losing two friends to suicide, and represented this platform when she was crowned Miss Staten Island with the Miss America Foundation. The Miss America Foundation strives to change lives and influence young women across the world, which is why LOVE GOES ON will celebrate female composers past and present, and of all genres.
LOVE GOES ON: A Concert Celebrating Female Composers will appear for one-night only at The Cutting Room next week, Monday April 25th at 7:30 PM! Don’t miss your chance to not only support some of your favorite Broadway performers but also celebrate female composers while supporting an incredibly important organization in the process!
