BroadwayBroadway is lending a helping hand to the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.

Brett Boles, author of the musical “Foreverman,” and Tony Award-winning producer Van Dean have organized a benefit concert later this month to raise money for United Way of Western Connecticut’s Sandy Hook School Support Fund.

“From Broadway with Love: A Benefit Concert For Sandy Hook,” featuring song, dance and other appearances from some of Broadway’s biggest names, will take place at the Palace Theater in Waterbury, Conn., on January 28. Waterbury is 20 miles from Newtown.

A long list of Tony Award-winning or nominated performers are scheduled to appear, including Brian Stokes Mitchell (“Kiss Me Kate“), Stephen Schwartz (“Wicked“), Marc Shaiman (“Hairspray“) and Christine Ebersole (“Grey Gardens“).

“The outpouring of love and support from the Broadway community has been incredibly heartwarming,” Dean said in a statement. “Everyone was looking for a way they could use their talents to bring something positive to the community. ‘From Broadway With Love’ provides them with the perfect outlet to do so.”

Although the evening will be free for Sandy Hook families and first responders, some tickets will be available to the public for $50 to $250.
