Curtain Up!, a one-hour live weekday variety show targeted at shut-in seniors, debuts today, March 26, at 4 pm ET over YouTube and Facebook.
Today’s scheduled performers include singer/actor Will Roland (Broadway’s Dear Evan Hanson and Be More Chill) and singers Brandon & James (America’s Got Talent). Tomorrow will bring singer/actors Jean Louisa Kelly (Uncle Buck and Yes, Dear) and Emily Walton (Broadway’s Come From Away).
“I am grateful for the opportunity to use my voice to connect people in isolation through live performance,” said Kelly. “We are separated but, to quote Stephen Sondheim, ‘No one is alone.’”
Curtain Up! Is produced by Seniorly in partnership with Sing For Your Seniors, a New York City-based based non-profit. For more info, and direct links to the series on Seniorly’s YouTube and Facebook feeds, visit seniorly.com/curtainup.
