Broadway is deeply involved with charity and supporting important causes….it’s in the DNA. This podcast will spotlight Broadway actors, shows and organizations in their pursuit of social responsibility and impact. You will hear from guests about their causes, how they got involved with charities, as well as stories of the people who have benefited from these philanthropic efforts. From stars to stagehands, from ensemble and cast members to big organizations and small, we will discuss why philanthropy is so vital and inspiring. And we will be inspired to do good, get educated and take action to make the world a better place. This feel-good podcast will also discuss ways in which the listeners can become “everyday” philanthropists.
