Arts for Autism 2017 Recap
"This event to me is special because it shows that there isn't one way to tell a story. The power of song. The power of dance. It has a farther reach than just entertainment. We can do something. We can do something really important."
- Kelvin Moon Loh, The King and I & Spongebob

Arts for Autism is a one night annual Broadway benefit concert where the biggest names on Broadway join performing arts students from around the country onstage at the Gershwin Theatre (home to Broadway's production of Wicked). Tony Award winner, Kelli O'Hara (The King and I) hosted the show in 2016 an 2017, and last year was joined by Tony Award nominees Stephanie J. Block (Falsettos), Christopher Jackson (Hamilton), Adrienne Warren (Shuffle Along), and dozens more.
Together they perform, spread awareness, and inspire compassion, kindness, and understanding for those affected by autism. This year will mark the third annual benefit concert with 100% of the ticket sale proceeds benefiting Autism Speaks. The show raised $36,000 in 2016 and $45,000 in 2017.
