Broadway to mark 9/11 anniversary with iconic song

The Associated Press, Friday, September 9, 2011, 7:27am (PDT)

NEW YORK (AP) -- Broadway plans to mark the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terror attacks with a reprise of the song that performers sang in Times Square in the days after 9/11.

Matthew Broderick, Harvey Fierstein, Joel Grey, Bebe Neuwirth and Brooke Shields will gather with cast members from several musicals to sing John Kander and Fred Ebb's "New York, New York" — as they did 10 years ago.

The Friday afternoon event at Duffy Square will include a 29-piece live orchestra. NYPD Officer Daniel Rodriguez is expected to sing an operatic "God Bless America."

The event is being put on to support the 9/11 Day of Service and Remembrance's I Will Campaign.
