Broadway in the H.O.O.D (BITH) kicks off its “Resilience Personified” season with "From Broadway With Love: Honoring The Shoulders We Stand On," a benefit concert at The Smith Center!

This awesome evening of entertainment on July 8 will feature some of the brightest Broadway stars, Las Vegas legends, and over 300 entertainers from across the world.

"From Broadway With Love" will be a one-night-only fundraiser that will aid BITH’s mission to Help Others Open Doors in the Las Vegas community and pay tribute to the greats who paved the way, with a very special performance by Tony Award-winner Savion Glover!

BITH serves over two hundred cast members locally and nationally and continues to strive to make its program free to low-cost for members. Thanks to the generosity of The Smith Center, and the community over the last seven years, BITH has been able to cast and produce quality productions that the community has graciously supported.

Glover is known as "the world's greatest tap dancer." He began his Broadway career at the age of 12.

Other performers include Reva Rice, Earl Turner, Merald "Bubba" Knight, Deniece Williams, Clint Holmes, Antonio "Huggy Bear" Fargas, Anthony Wayne, Travis Cloer and others.
