Broadway stars are uniting for a virtual pay-per-view concert of the Halloween classic, The Nightmare Before Christmas, which will benefit The Actors Fund and the Lymphoma Research Foundation. The one-night-only event will see the actors use only items and clothing found around their house combined with their imaginations, and will be available to stream on Saturday, October 31 at 7 pm ET, according to a press release from The Actors Fund.
The cast includes: Rafael Casal (Blindspotting, Bad Education), Adrienne Warren (Tina: The Tina Turner Musical, Shuffle Along, Bring It On: The Musical), James Monroe Iglehart (Aladdin, Hamilton, Memphis), Danny Burstein (Moulin Rouge!, My Fair Lady, Fiddler on the Roof), Nik Walker (Ain’t Too Proud, Hamilton, Motown The Musical), Lesli Margherita (Dames at Sea, Matilda, EmojiLand), Rob McClure (Chaplin, Mrs. Doubtfire, Beetlejuice) and more.
“We are extremely grateful to Tim Burton, Danny Elfman and the Disney Music Group for allowing us the opportunity to bring our concert interpretation of The Nightmare Before Christmas to everyone this Halloween,” said Iglehart.
