Playbill.com, the website of the monthly U.S. magazine for theatergoers, reports that a concert-event will be held on January 20, 2014, 9:00pm at Stage 72, the Triad in New York City. Entitled “An Evening of Music and Comedy: Disaster Relief for the Philippines,” the show will include performances from Broadway and Off-Broadway singers and New York City based comedians to raise awareness and much needed funds for the relief effort in the Philippines caused by typhoon Haiyan or Yolanda.

Performers include singers Erik Liberman (Lovemusik), J. Bernard Calloway (Memphis), Melissa Van Pelt, Vanessa Dawson, Steven M. Goldsmith, Chris Critelli, Eliza Hayes Maher, Alia Bisharat and The Manhattan Dolls and comedians Rick Younger, Chris Griggs, Aaron Friedman and Carrie Gravenson.

The show is produced by Vanessa Dawson and hosted by Chelsea Piers. Proceeds will benefit The Red Cross, and a live auction will be held at intermission.
