Darren is hosting and Matthew Morrison will be performing at Today Tix's Dramatists Guild Foundation Benefit Concert.  I wonder if this is the project that Benjamin Rauhala will be working with Darren.

Darren Criss, Matthew Morrison, Ethan Slater, and More Will Lead TodayTix's Dramatists Guild Foundation Benefit Concert

Sept 12, 2018

TodayTix will celebrate its five-year anniversary with a concert to benefit Dramatists Guild Foundation (DGF) New Voices program, on September 24th at 7:30pm at National Sawdust in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

The evening will bring together the elements that have helped bring TodayTix to its five-year anniversary -- the artists, the performances and the audiences. Hosted by Darren Criss ("The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story," "Hedwig and the Angry Inch"), the concert will feature stripped down musical sessions, in an intimate setting, by Mark Ballas (currently starring in "Kinky Boots" on Broadway, "Dancing with the Stars") with his wife and other half of music duo Alexander Jean, BC Jean, Erich Bergen ("Madam Secretary"), Ariana DeBose (Tony Nominee, "The Donna Summer Musical"), Kathryn Gallagher (Lifetime's "You," "Spring Awakening"), Lesli Margherita (Olivier Award winner), Matthew Morrison (Tony and Emmy Nominee) and Ethan Slater (Tony Nominee, "SpongeBob SquarePants: The Broadway Musical"). Benjamin Rauhala will serve as Music Director.

[ . . . ]

The concert will kick off at 7:30pm EST at National Sawdust, a dynamic home for artists and new music in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Tickets are available now exclusively on the TodayTix app and website. General Admission tickets are $55 for standing room or $149 for VIP Lounge tickets, which includes access to the reserved VIP Lounge, a pre-concert cocktail reception and autographed commemorative poster from the show's cast.

Profits from ticket sales will directly benefit DGF's New Voices program. In alignment with TodayTix's mission to make theater more accessible, the New Voices program brings trained teaching artists into classrooms, where they lead students in the collaborative creation of their own plays. This empowers students to discover the power of their own voices, helping theater to thrive for years to come.

WE Day UN (NYC, September 26, 2018).



He sounds fantastic.  His tone is lovely, and he has really grown in terms of control.  The really tough part where he has to jump up several notes on "as they turn your dreams to . . .  sha aa aa aa ame," was so well executed and sounded beautiful.  And also was impressed how he finished so strong at the end   ("so different now than what it seeeeemeed, now life has killed the dream I dreeeeeeeeamed").  So pretty to listen to.
