This exclusive charity event will raise awareness and provide healing, hope, and inspiration for those who have experienced or identified with breast cancer in their life or community. The effects of a cancer diagnosis can be devastating both physically and mentally. “Our mission is to raise funds for cancer research and to enlighten entertain and provide hope, to those affected by the disease,” said King. “Recognizing the devastation of cancer, La Vie Theaters has developed this creative event to carry out its mission of hope and awareness.”
The featured musical, Yahweh on Broadway, is a story of Greg Mckenzie’s journey and triumph after suffering the loss of his mother to breast cancer. It is a journey to finding peace with God in the shadow of this tragedy. The inspired musical was written after the tragic loss of the playwright's cousin to Hodgkin’s Lymphoma while also enduring the rising number of friend’s with loved ones affected by cancer.
“Yahweh is coming to Broadway, and Greg is determined to stop him” explains King. “He is devastated that God would allow his mother to die. Then three yentas come to the rescue and he is transitioned into the biblical Exodus. This tragic story turns from pain to joy and forgiveness!”
The magical evening will serve to honor the lives of loved ones lost, survived, and those who are battling cancer as well as honor the 9/11 first responders that lost their lives to cancer due to asbestos poisoning.
