Ann Harada, Raymond J. Lee, Deborah Lew, Jose Llana and Ann Sanders will join Christine Toy Johnson and Bruce Alan Johnson on Sunday, March 28, 2010, for a concert to benefit their film, TRANSCENDING – THE WAT MISAKA STORY, and celebrate the release of the DVD. The show begins at 9:30 p.m. at the Laurie Beechman Theatre, 407 West 42nd St. in New York City. The concert is directed by Tony Award winner Michele Pawk, with musical direction by Marco Paguia.
Christine and Company will be singing songs from the 1946-47 Broadway season, the year that Wat came to Madison Square Garden and led the University of Utah to win the N.I.T. championship.
There is a $25 cover charge (which includes a chance to win some really cool prizes) and a $15 food/drink minimum. The cover charge will go towards the film’s finishing funds.
Space is limited. For reservations, call 212-695-6909.
