Broadway Stars Urge You To Help Protect The NEA

Go to to watch a video featuring Broadway stars (and past Festival of New Musicals and Songwriter Showcase alumni writers and performers) Sheldon Harnick (That Pig of a Molette, Festival ’89), Drew Gasparini (Songwriters Showcase 2009) Alex Brightman, Ann Harada, Kara Lindsay, and more speaking passionately about the need to support the arts and the NEA.

In the wake of the Trump administration’s 2018 budget proposal, which calls for the elimination of the National Endowment for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and additional domestic programs, several Broadway stars and luminaries have joined forces with Playbill to express their concern and to say “no” to these cuts.
