How to stream Sing Street: Grounded - At Home With The Broadway Cast
Sing Street's digital fundraiser will be streamed live on Facebook from 6:30pm (ET) tonight.
Tune in to upcoming Broadway musical Sing Street's Facebook page tonight from 6:30pm until 7pm (ET) for a special benefit stream in support of both Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS and The Mayor's Fund to Advance New York City.
Join the Broadway cast of Sing Street, as they gather virtually from their homes in Ireland, Great Britain, and the United States to play their instruments and sing the musical numbers from the production, including “Up,” “Drive It Like You Stole It,” and “Go Now.” In addition, the cast will also perform the world premiere of a new song entitled “Love and Stars,” written especially for the Broadway premiere.
Cast members Brenock O’Connor, Zara Devlin and Gus Halper released the following joint statement: “We want to help the doctors, nurses and first responders who are putting themselves in harm’s way so we can all stay safe in our homes. As we have our instruments and our voices, this is something we can do to help those who are on the front lines of this disaster. On behalf of our entire cast, we are encouraging everyone to support The Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City and Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. We are excited to have this opportunity because we have found a way to play together again, hopefully capturing the charm and heart of the show from our homes around the world.”
