Where and When to See the Live Stream
Broadway went dark in early March and the Tony Awards have already been postponed but you can still enjoy Broadway performances from the comfort of your home. In response to the pandemic, Disney on Broadway’s Anniversary Concert will be streamed to raise money for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS’ COVID-19 Emergency Assistance Fund that will help support everyone impacted, meaning not only those on stage but also backstage. If you donate to BroadwayCares, your donation will be matched dollar-for-dollar by more than 20 Broadway producers.
The live stream will be hosted by Frozen’s Ryan McCartan.
