I love Broadway, but right now, it’s struggling due to being shutdown in the pandemic. The lights aren’t totally dim, however…Thursday, December 10, at 8pm ET, NBC will air the 2-hour special, “One Night Only: The Best of Broadway.”
Hosted by Tony Award-nominated Tina Fey (“Mean Girls”), “One Night Only: The Best of Broadway” will be an unforgettable night of music celebrating the incredible and resilient Broadway community and featuring songs from the Great Bright Way’s top productions.
Several of Broadway’s best shows will take over the streets of New York City with special performances from the casts of “Ain’t Too Proud – The Life and Times of The Temptations,” “Chicago,” “Jagged Little Pill,” “Diana: The Musical,” “Jersey Boys,” “Mean Girls,” “Rent,” and an appearance by the cast of “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.”
The night will also showcase special sneak peaks at Broadway shows coming in 2021.
“One Night Only: The Best of Broadway” will also feature performances by Kelly Clarkson, Brett Eldredge, and Patti LaBelle, and appearances from Annaleigh Ashford, Lance Bass, Kristen Bell, Ron Cephas Jones, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Peter Gallagher, Josh Groban, Jake Gyllenhaal, Sean Hayes, Nathan Lane, Camryn Manheim, Alanis Morissette, Jerry O’Connell, Leslie Odom Jr., Billy Porter, John Stamos, Aaron Tveit, Blair Underwood, Vanessa Williams, Susan Kelechi Watson, and more.
NBCUniversal is making a donation to Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, and donations during this special will help provide groceries and medication, health care and emergency financial assistance to those in the Broadway community who are struggling through a pandemic that threatens their health and will shutter their industry for more than a year.
For more than 25 years, Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS has been helping to support and strengthen The Actors Fund’s safety net of social services, enabling thousands in the entertainment industry receive lifesaving medications, health care, nutritious meals, counseling and emergency financial assistance.
