Rock Of Ages Gives Back

As we all know the recent horrific situation in Haiti has left the country in ruin and left thousands of people virtually homeless. Over the past couple of weeks celebrities and people from all walks of life have given their time and money to help the cause. You can now count a few more among those people. Earlier this week it was announced that the cast of Broadway's Rock of Ages are auctioning off backstage tours to raise funds for the relief effort in Haiti.

Here is a statement from Kerry Butler one of the stars of the show. “We’re very excited about this auction package we’ve been offering for the past week, which will include a drink with James Carpinello and me at Glass House afterward,” Butler said in a statement. “We hope this will encourage others to look at their spheres of influence and think about what else they can do for Haiti. A lot has been given by the public, but so much more is needed for the long-term recovery.”

Updates on the auction can be viewed via Ms. Butlers twitter feed. I applaud the cast and hope other Broadway shows will soon follow suit in the coming weeks. Until next time theatre fans.
