Tomorrow night, Tuesday, September 13th, I am honored to be performing in a benefit concert which will take place at the Carrie Hamilton Theatre at The Pasadena Playhouse at 7:30 PM. All proceeds go to the Rodriguez Family Care Fund…
This concert will benefit 23-year-old Victor Rodriguez and his family. In June 2011, Sacramento newlyweds Victor and Crystal Rodriguez went parasailing on the last day of their honeymoon in the Bahamas. At a height of approximately 200 feet their harness snapped, and they fell into the ocean. Crystal was killed, and Victor suffered severe injuries. Neither of them had health or life insurance. They had only been married 12 days.
The story is heartbreaking, and sadly the battle continues for Victor. He is currently hospitalized due to complications from the accident, and won’t be able to attend the concert in person, as he had planned. We hope this night of performances can lift his spirit, ease his financial burdens, and provide him with hope, love and support.
The line up of performers is incredible, including Melora Hardin (THE OFFICE / Broadway’s Chicago), Anneliese van der Pol (That’s So Raven’s / Broadway’s Beauty & the Beast), Monika Beal (Long Beach Opera’s Philip Glass’ Akhnaten), 30 Rock’s Todd Buonopane (Broadway’s The 25th Annual Putman County Spelling Bee), Hart of Dixie’s Deborah S. Craig (Broadway’s The 25th Annual Putman County Spelling Bee), Devin Kelly, Charley Izabella King (Broadway’s The Producers), Leigh Ann Larkin (Broadway’s Gypsy & A Little Night Music), High School Musical: Get in the Picture’s Jennifer Malenke (Broadway’s Into The Woods – Revival) and Jacquelynn Ware, and the night will be headlined by Emmy winner, Wane Brady.
