P.S. 166 – Broadway Sings!

On Sunday, April 19th, guest artists from over 32 Broadway shows, a packed theater audience, and members of the Duggal Big Picture Foundation assembled for what has become an annual tradition at The Richard Rodgers School, PS 166. The Manhattan Upper Westside school bearing the name of America’s greatest lyric composer, Richard Rodgers, annually hosts this one night benefit concert, “Broadway Sings”, in support of arts education.

As part of their support, Duggal Big Picture Foundation provided a very special original canvas fine art piece, utilizing the classic Broadway poster design of graphic artist Edward Guttman. Once autographed by every Broadway performer, the piece was auctioned off to a very enthusiastic audience, all proceeds extended as additional support to the charity.


“We are extremely fortunate to have so many guest artists wanting to be a part of it”, shares Marc Lovci, who produced and emceed Broadway Sings. When asked why the positive response, Lovci states, “It is an intimate, exciting, energy filled evening of incredible performances. The house is full of huge fans of Broadway, along with kids who may have yet to step foot in their first Broadway theater. Also, I believe it attracts such exceptional talent because they all have a personal story of the impact theater arts made in their life growing up.


For guest artists it may also be the school’s connection to Richard Rodgers, where he studied and graced the same stage from age 9 to 14. Doreen Montalvo, who will be on Broadway this fall in, “On your Feet! The Emilio and Gloria Estefan Story”, shared, “When asked to be a part of this I didn’t even hesitate! It’s an evening of Broadway music, with some amazing Broadway performers, for a great cause. And besides I made my Broadway debut at the Richard Rogers Theatre with ‘In The Heights’.”
