The show is produced by Broadway Cares and will benefit BC/EFA and The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center of New York City.
According to the BroadwayCares website:
BROADWAY BACKWARDS will feature some of Broadway’s biggest names singing songs originally written for the opposite gender: women singing songs written for men and men singing songs written for women. By keeping all of the lyrics intact, including the original pronouns, each song takes on an entirely new dimension, sometimes with hysterical results and sometimes with immensely touching results. BROADWAY BACKWARDS will give its audience a chance to see and hear some of the most treasured songs of the Great White Way in a whole new key.
I thought it might be interesting to put together a list of songs that Clay might sing at this fun concert. I’ll start with 3 that might be fun:
1. As Long As He Needs Me – from Oliver
2. I Am What I Am – La Cage aux Folles
3. Don’t Rain On My Parade – Funny Girl
What songs would you like to hear Clay sing at this concert?
Do you need a little help? This website lists Broadway songs by the gender singing them. You might get some good ideas.
