CHATTER AWAY: Overnight Open Thread

Just in from Broadway Cares:

At the 32nd Annual Easter Bonnet Competition, the talented young cast of School of Rock – The Musical joined forces with Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students Sawyer Garrity and Andrea Peña to perform the students’ inspiring original song, “Shine.” Garrity and Peña wrote the song in response to the shooting at their Parkland, FL, school that killed 17 students and teachers in February.

The stirring performance was dedicated to the victims lost in the senseless massacre. Humor, hope and heart were at the core of the performances at the 32nd annual Easter Bonnet Competition, which raised $5,721,879 for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. The near-record number was raised by 62 Broadway, Off-Broadway and national touring productions and was announced Tuesday, April 24, 2018, by Victor Garber and Bernadette Peters (Hello, Dolly!) and Andrew Garfield and Nathan Lane (Angels in America).
