Join us for an evening of top musical talent, international food, drinks, and multicultural community at Drom, an East Village lounge known for a warm atmosphere and diverse music.
BROADWAY IN SOUTH AFRICA
Featuring cast members from Wicked, The Lion King, Rent, and more! This is a rare opportunity to see top Broadway talent in an intimate venue. We saw these guys at Symphony Space and they blew us away! Broadway in South Africa aims to develop a cross-cultural exchange between youth who are in need and artists who seek to use their talents for change.
