Tony Award winner Lena Hall will join Tony nominees Brad Oscar and Montego Glover, leading lady Sierra Boggess, and other stage and TV stars for Make Believe on Broadway, the November 6 New York City fundraising gala for the Only Make Believe foundation, which creates and performs interactive theatre for children in hospitals and care facilities,

Cecily Strong, a cast member of NBC’s Saturday Night Live, will host the event at Broadway’s Schoenfeld Theatre in West 45th Street in Manhattan.

Other guest performers include Emmy Award winner Thomas Roberts (MSNBC Live), Betsy Wolfe (Falsettos), and Siobhan Dillon (Sunset Boulevard), with more to be announced. Most of the guests will sing numbers to be announced in the coming weeks.

The gala will be co-directed by Tony Award-winning playwright Joe DiPietro (Memphis) and Brad Oscar (Something Rotten!), with musical direction by Patrick Vaccariello.

The Only Make Believe (OMB) mission statement says they are dedicated to “the principle that freeing a child’s imagination is a valuable part of the healing process.” OMB has served more than 52,000 children since 1999 and has performed in more than 55 hospitals and care facilities in the New York City and Washington, D.C., areas.

Priced at $75 to $500, tickets for the event can be purchased online, or by calling (656) 336-1500.

Sierra Boggess is scheduled to be a special guest performer on Playbill’s Broadway on the High Seas July 2018 cruise to Iceland, accompanied by Judy Kuhn, Christine Ebersole, Rob McClure, Jarrod Spector, and Carmen Cusack.

Cabins are still available for Broadway on the Danube River with Michael Feinstein for November 3–13, 2017, also featuring Rachel Bay Jones, Julia Murney, Christopher Fitzgerald, Marc Kudisch, Christopher Sieber, Brandon Uranowitz, and Seth Rudetsky.
