Many talented performers from the worlds of stage and screen are coming together to perform on Monday evening, June 7, in support of their friend and colleague Ana Adame, who has been fighting late-stage lymphoma since February of this year. The curtain will rise at 8pm at Boston Court Performing Arts Center in Pasadena, with doors opening at 7:00 for a silent auction. Angels 4 Ana is a visiting presentation at Boston Court Performing Arts Center.
Friends of Ana who are scheduled to appear include Ana Ortiz (Ugly Betty), Megan Hilty (Wicked)
, Jason Robert Brown (Parade, The Last Five Years, Songs for a New World), Valerie Perri (Evita), Susan Egan (Beauty and the Beast), American Idol finalist Luke Menard, Michelle Duffy (Mask, Can-Can), Steve Kazee (Spamalot), and Georgia Stitt (Big Red Sun, Mosaic); Gina Coconato; and cast members Ryan Castellino, Jim Holdridge and Jessica Keenan Wynn from Life Could Be A Dream, currently in its ninth smash month at the Hudson Mainstage Theatre in Hollywood.
Christopher Lloyd Bratten will serve as the evening’s music director. He has worked with many talented artists such as Shoshana Bean, Eden Espinosa, Zachary Quinto, Paula Cole and Neil Patrick Harris, to name only a few. Currently, Christopher is the music director for Show At Barre, a unique cabaret experience which performs every Saturday night in Los Angeles.
Ana Adame was diagnosed with late-stage lymphoma this past February. The cancer treatments have been extensive and intense, keeping her away from her son (his well-being is her biggest concern), her husband, and her work. To celebrate Ana’s spirit and tenacity, and to help her through this medical and financial crisis, her friends are putting together this very special evening of cabaret performances.
The evening is being produced by Daniel Tatar, who as an actor originated the role of Denny in Life Could Be a Dream, a role he will reprise this summer at Laguna Playhouse. Other stage credits include Paradise Lost: Shadows and Wings, The Last Five Years, Ray Charles Live, Kiss of the Spider Woman, and the Reprise concerts of Elegies and Baby. Television credits include 90210, CSI:NY, Grey’s Anatomy and Real Time with Bill Maher, as well as commercials for Safeway, Budweiser, U.S. Cellular, U.S. Military, and America Online.
In addition to the evening’s entertainment, a silent auction will feature items signed by the performers, gifts and items from television shows, original artwork and jewelry, and more. Suggested donation for admission is $50; VIP reserved seats are available for $100.
