Canceled: Broadway Backwards

In an abundance of caution, we have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s edition of Broadway Backwards scheduled for Monday, March 16. We are devastated we can’t share this celebration of love and show tunes with you.

We are rightly focused on the coronavirus pandemic. All of our energies at Broadway Cares are, for now, keenly aimed at raising as much money as possible through our COVID-19 Emergency Assistance Fund at

If you have already purchased tickets, you have two options:

1. Use the full value of your tickets as a tax-deductible donation to Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. In these particularly uncertain times, this will allow those in need to continue receiving lifesaving medications, counseling, nutritious meals and health care. Your support and generosity is sincerely appreciated.

To take advantage of this option, you do not need to do anything. We will send you a letter within three weeks reflecting your full ticket value as a tax-deductible donation.

2. Request a refund by contacting before 5 pm March 31.

Broadway Backwards is produced by Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS and benefits Broadway Cares and the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center in New York City.

What began as a small, grassroots concert performed at The Center in 2006 quickly grew into a highly anticipated event presented in Broadway’s best theatres. In its 14 editions, Broadway Backwards has raised more than $4.8 million for Broadway Cares and The Center.
