It was a day and night I will never forget. I was so honored to be in Waterbury, CT on Monday, January 28th at From Broadway With Love: A Benefit Concert for Sandy Hook and to meet the families of the 20 children who lost their lives at Sandy Hook Elementary School on December 14, 2012.

The best way I could capture the emotions of the benefit concert and the love that filled The Palace Theatre in Waterbury, CT on Monday, January 28th is to offer you this short video and a chance for you to view the beautiful pictures taken by Grace Rainer Long Photography. They tell the story better than I ever could.

The video features highlights from interviews I conducted with Richard Kind, Christine Ebersole, cast members from Million Dollar Quartet, Producers Van Dean and Brett Boles, Michael Cerveris, Frank Wildhorn, Brooke Tansley, Brian Stokes Mitchell, Nikki Blonsky, and Marc Shaiman, and some press clips from the show.
