What's New?

Le Jazz Hot!

Caleb is thrilled to be back performing at The New Amsterdam Theatre on 42nd Street with Broadway Cares Equity Fights AIDS in the in-person return of Broadway Backwards 2022! He kicked off the show in the Opening Number of “Le Jazz Hot” from Victor/Victoria, performed by Tony nominated Matt Doyle. The sizzling number was choreographed by the fabulous James Kinney.

The 16th edition of the show, which had not been performed live since 2019 because of the coronavirus pandemic, raised a record-breaking $758,582 to benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS and The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center in New York City. Jenn Colella returned as host, leading a cast of 86 performers and a 13-piece orchestra that enchanted a standing-room-only audience at Disney’s New Amsterdam Theatre with LGBTQ+ affirming numbers. Broadway Backwards creator Robert Bartley wrote and directed this year’s return to the stage alongside associate director Adam Roberts. Mary-Mitchell Campbell served as music supervisor; Ted Arthur was music director with Nicholas Connors and Nick Wilders as associate music directors. Jeff Brancato was production supervisor and Gregory R. Covert was production stage manager.

What began as a small, grassroots concert performed in the community room at The Center in 2006 has grown into a highly anticipated event presented in one of Broadway’s most beautiful theaters. In its 16 editions, Broadway Backwards has raised $6.3 million for Broadway Cares and The Center.
