Jeff Calhoun, Tad Wilson, and Christopher Gurr Sleep Out for Covenant House

The Sleep Out is a one-night fundraising event that began with the young people of Covenant House meeting and speaking with the Broadway community at the crisis shelter at 460 W. 41st Street. The Broadway Sleep Out participants received cardboard boxes, sleeping bags and a piece of pavement to bed down for the night.

The Sleep Out executive committee of Audra McDonald, Stephanie J. Block, Jeff Calhoun, Darius de Haas, Capathia Jenkins, Thomas Schumacher, and Keala Settle rallied the entire Broadway community to fight homelessness. 

Sleep Out: Broadway Edition is open to any member of the theatrical community with a Broadway, Off-Broadway or national tour credit. To get involved for next year contact Melissa Lee at sleepout@covenanthouse.org or call (212) 727-4012.
