Exclusive pics from Broadway's "Defying Inequality" concert

24 February 2009 5:47 PM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

No doubt inspired by the heartfelt pro-gay marriage remarks of Milk’s Sean Penn and Dustin Lance Black at Sunday's Academy Awards ceremony, members of the Broadway community gathered at the Gershwin Theatre on Monday, February 23 for Defying Inequality, a celebrity benefit concert for equal rights for the Glbt community.

The show began with a live performance of Marc Shaiman’s Prop. 8: The Musical, the video version of which has become an Internet phenomenon.

In addition to such Broadway stars as Nathan Lane, Harvey Fierstein, David Hyde Pierce, and Jane Fonda (who is soon to open in 33 Variations), the standing room only event featured impassioned speeches and appearances by Cyndi Lauper, Carson Kressley, Judy Gold, political pundit Keith Olbermann, Ugly Betty stars Michael Urie and Mark Indelicato, and a host of other notables, as well as performances by the casts of a dozen Broadway shows.
