Cynthia Erivo and Joshua Henry to Star in Last Five Years Benefit

Proceeds will be used to support gun control efforts.

Tony Award winner Cynthia Erivo (The Color Purple) and Tony nominee Joshua Henry (Shuffle Along) will star in a one-night-only special benefit performance of the Jason Robert Brown musical The Last Five Years, directed by the composer himself.

The September 12 concert at Town Hall, 123 West 43rd Street, midtown Manhattan, will aid one of Brown’s personal causes, gun control, with proceeds going to the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence. The national organization seeks to create a safer America by cutting gun deaths in half by 2025.
