Two-time Tony & Emmy Award-winning actress Bebe Neuwirth is directing and starring in a special one-time only concert on Monday, October 3rd to benefit the special partnership between Equine Advocates (www.equineadvocates.org) and The Henry Street Settlement (www.henrystreet.org). The partnership brings Henry Street clients – many of them children living in shelters and survivors of domestic violence to Equine Advocates Horse Sanctuary in Chatham, NY where they spend time in the country learning about rescued horses, seeing them up close and having hands-on contact with them.
Neuwirth will head an all-star cast which also features other notable Broadway performers including Brenda Braxton, Scott Crady, Jason Danieley, Brian d’Arcy James, Dan Lipton, Marin Mazzie, Roger Rees in addition to a special performance by the Dontee Keihn Dance Company. We are also pleased to have musicians Julie Mcbride and David Gardos performing.
“I am so happy to have the opportunity to put on a show with my friends for these two fantastic organizations,” said Neuwirth. “The Henry Street Settlement and Equine Advocates are terrific!”
David Garza, the Executive Director at Henry Street says that, “…these visits to Equine Advocates Horse Sanctuary have proven to be a transformative experience for the children and adults who have participated in the program thus far.” Susan Wagner, President and Founder of Equine Advocates says that, “…the connection between rescued horses and many of these children and adults is both profound and heartwarming…and helps bring about a greater understanding that abuse in any form toward any living being is completely unacceptable.”
