Cancer is often detected at a stage where there is no cure. Early detection is the critical answer to saving lives. Did you know dogs can detect cancer earlier and with greater accuracy than any current testing? Join us for the first annual BROADWAY SNIFFS OUT CANCER, an all-star Broadway benefit concert to raise money to train our canine friends to save lives and honor all of the loved ones we’ve lost to cancer. Stars from Broadway’s HAMILTON, WICKED, RENT, BOOK OF MORMON, CHICAGO, ALLEGIANCE, GODSPELL, SWEET CHARITY, A CHORUS LINE (and some surprise celebrity special guests) will unite for one night only to raise money to support two of the international organizations at the forefront of this cutting-edge method of early detection. Corbin Bleu (Holiday Inn, In The Heights, High School Musical) Telly Leung (Allegiance, Rent) Lindsay Mendez (Wicked, Godspell, Significant Other) Rory O’Malley (Tony Award nominee, Hamilton, Book of Mormon) Jenna Ushkowitz (Glee, Waitress, Spring Awakening) … and more performers TBA …. Music direction by Gary Adler (Alterboyz) with Mary Ann McSweeney (bass) & Michael Croiter (drums). Tickets start at $50. All proceeds from this year’s BROADWAY SNIFFS OUT CANCER will go to InSitu Foundation Certification Program (a US-based not-for-profit that created the first medical protocol for the selection, training, and handling of the cancer detection dogs and their handlers) and Medical Detection Dogs (a UK-based not-for-profit dedicated to training cancer and bio detection dogs).
