Live Out Loud “Die Mommie Die” Benefit

Going to the theater never felt this good.

On Wednesday, October 10, more than 200 supporters of Live Out Loud turned out in full force for a special benefit performance of Charles Busch’s new Off-Broadway hit “Die Mommie Die!”

The evening kicked-off with a welcome from director Carl Andress before the curtain-raised on the first preview performance of one of the most-anticipated and hilarious new comedies of the fall season. After the curtain call, actor and playwright Charles Busch delivered a warm and heartfelt tribute to the important work that Live Out Loud does for LGBT youth in New York City.

The night concluded with a VIP after-party with the show’s cast including Busch, Emmy Award nominee Van Hansis (who made television history with the first on-screen gay kiss in daytime soap operas on “As the World Turns”), Chris Hoch, and Ashley Morris.

Special thanks to long-time Live Out Loud supporters and “Die Mommie Die” producers Bob Boyett and Daryl Roth for helping make the benefit such a success.

All proceeds raised from the event will support Live Out Loud, New York’s premier non-profit organization dedicated to connecting LGBT youth to leaders and role models in the LGBT community through events and programs at area schools and universities.
