Cancer is often detected at a stage where there is no cure. Early detection is THE critical answer to saving lives. Did you know dogs can detect cancer EARLIER and with greater accuracy than ANY current testing?
Join us in New York on 10/10 for the First Annual BROADWAY SNIFFS OUT CANCER, an All-Star Broadway benefit concert to raise awareness and funds to train our canine friends to save lives and honor all of the loved ones we’ve lost to cancer.
Stars from Broadway’s HAMILTON, WICKED, RENT, BOOK OF MORMON, CHICAGO, ALLEGIANCE, GODSPELL, SWEET CHARITY, A CHORUS LINE (and some surprise celebrity special guests) will unite for one night only to raise money to support two of the international organizations at the forefront of this cutting-edge method of early detection.
All proceeds from this year's BROADWAY SNIFFS OUT CANCER will go to:
- In Situ Foundation Certification Program, a US-based not-for-profit that created the first medical protocol for the selection, training, and handling of the cancer detection dogs and their handlers; and
- Medical Detection Dogs, a UK-based not-for-profit dedicated to training cancer and bio detection dogs. "Sniffing Out Cancer", the first US Documentary to bring light to the work of the cancer-detection dogs, will also be recognized during the Benefit.
The show will feature Megan Hilty (Tony Award nominee, Smash, Noises Off, Wicked) Alex Newell (Glee, Imaginary Friends, Geography Club), Telly Leung (In Transit, Allegiance, Rent), Michael McElroy and Broadway Inspirational Voices (Tony Award nominee, Rent, Big River, Who's Tommy), Lindsay Mendez (Wicked, Godspell, Significant Other), Rory O'Malley (Tony Award nominee, Hamilton, Book of Mormon), Jenna Ushkowitz (Glee, Waitress, Spring Awakening), Jenifer Foote (Holiday Inn, On the Twentieth Century), Tracy Jai Edwards* (Ruthless, Legally Blonde), Alexis Carra* (Wicked, Sweet Charity, ABC-TV's "Mixology"), Jade Tailor* (SyFy's "The Magicians"), Virginia Williams* (Woodlawn, USA Network's "Fairly Legal") and Brianna Brown* (Showtime's "Homeland," Lifetime TV's "Devious Maids"). Music direction is by Gary Adler (Alterboyz), with Steve Gilewsky on bass and Michael Croiter on drums.
