Cell Block Tango Stops the Show at Broadway Backwards


The 10th anniversary benefit raised $466,717 to benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS and New York City's LGBT Center. Check out this all-male version of a number from the musical, Chicago.

On March 11, a packed house gathered to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Robert Bartley's annual fundraising extravaganza Broadway Backwards. The celebrated showcase, which benefited the LGBT Community Center and Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, is "the only annual Broadway event custom-made for the gay and lesbian community, our friends and families," according to the organizers. And this year's star-studded offering celebrated the series by mixing new acts with highlights from previous outings -- raising a record-breaking $466,717 this year, and a total of $2.4 million over the past 10 years.

Below, highlights from Broadway Backwards 2015 included Chicago's "six merry murderesses" in a sexy, all-male version of "Cell Block Tango" featuring Joshua Buscher-West, Marty Lawson, Alfie Parker Jr., Waldemar Quinones-Villanueva, Alex Ringler and Ryan Steele.
