Last summer allowed me to check off two boxes on my dream list:
- To direct a musical
- To direct a project outside of the USA
And if you’ve been following me, you know that we had a wonderful time in Liberia doing The Wiz. When we returned, we decided to continue with the mission of Broadway Artist Connection and continue to support the Matsiko World Orphan Choir.
We are taking submissions for those who would like to perform in the Broadway Artists Connection All Stars Benefit for the Matsiko World Orphan Choir on Monday, Oct. 28th at the Laurie Beechman Theater on 42nd Street. Details below:
The Broadway Artists Connection (BAC) is a non-profit that brings together Broadway & Aspiring Artists to perform, connect and give “BAC” to our communities.
Our event is kicked off by several Broadway artists performing their newest works. Then we invite up 10 selected artists to take the mic and sing for a NYC casting director. One will be crowned the “Future of Broadway” and have their song posted on our fb page. All of the artists will have the chance to mingle, make connections and as importantly help us raise awareness for the Matsiko World Orphan Choir. Our vibe is positive and celebratory of all artists encouraging their journey to Broadway & beyond.
On Monday, Oct. 28th, artists must arrive at 4pm and are given an opportunity to run their song with our first rate accompanist. You’ll also be paired with a Broadway artist for some mentorship. Doors open at 6pm and the show begins at 7pm. Please only apply if you can make these times.
To join the line up:
Please send one song (does not need to be fancy – just an iphone video or something you already have will do) to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please put “BAC Submission” in the subject line. If you have performed with us before please just state your interest & when you performed with us. We encourage all ages (16 & up) and stages of career. One or two exceptional youngsters may be invited to perform.
We will select 10 performers for this event. If you are not selected this time, you’ll be kept on file for future events. Please do come join us and see what we are all about!

Look forward to seeing you all on Oct. 28th!
