NYC Pride, the official host of WorldPride NYC and Stonewall 50, announced further details about the finale for NYC Pride’s WorldPride Closing Ceremony in Times Square.
The finale will feature performers from 20 hit Broadway shows including Be More Chill, Hadestown, Hamilton, Mean Girls, Oklahoma!, Waitress, and more. Among the many Broadway stars will be Shoshana Bean, Wilson Cruz, and George Salazar who will all be belting out “Seasons of Love” from the Broadway musical, Rent. An impressive list of Broadway stars will join together in Times Square for a final WorldPride performance in NYC.
“The Broadway community is and has always been about inclusion. Broadway has long been a haven for LGBTQIA+ people, both onstage and off—whether it was taking care of people with HIV or continuing to bring LGBTQIA+ characters and stories to the stage. We are so excited that Broadway performers will be part of WorldPride as our whole community celebrates the 50th anniversary of Stonewall,” said Charlotte St. Martin, President of the Broadway League.
