JERSEY BOYS Broadway’s Russell Fischer will be part of a wonderful benefit show on August 15th in NYC!

Robert Intile, Jr. and Alina Gutiérrez are proud to present Sing For The Cure: A Benefit to take place on August 15th at 8pm at Donʼt Tell Mama, 343 West 46th Street, New York, NY. The event is to raise money for The American Cancer Society and the play
How My Mother Died Of Cancer, and Other Bedtime Stories, by Chris Kelly, to be featured in the 2010 New York International Fringe Festival.

In addition to Russell, the concert will feature the talents of Taylor Frey (South Pacific, Finianʼs Rainbow), Rory OʼMalley (…Spelling Bee, The Motion Picture “Dreamgirls” and co-founder of Broadway Impact), Julie Reiber (Wicked, Brooklyn, All Shook Up), and Tommar Wilson (Wonderland, HAIR). The event will be hosted by Josh Hemphill.

How My Mother Died Of Cancer, and Other Bedtime Stories, inspired by Kellyʼs real-life loss of his mother and including elements of his own experience, reflects humorously and sometimes uncomfortably on the effects of death on a family. Structured as a play
within a play, it depicts a group of loved ones trying to cope with a matriarchʼs absence, each othersʼ presence, and the complications that ensue when competing versions of the same life story are told. Part tragedy, part comedy, and part eulogy, the piece strives to take the audience on a revealing and personal journey through diagnosis, treatment, funeral, and everything after.

Date: August 15th at 8pm
Tickets: $24 plus 2 drink minimum CASH ONLY
For Reservations: Call 212-757-0788 after 4:30pm daily or visit
