Stars from “Dear Evan Hansen,” “A Bronx Tale,” “Wicked,” and beyond made their way to the Highline Ballroom on Oct. 30 for “Love Letter to Houston,” a benefit concert for victims of Hurricane Harvey, organized by Houston native and “Evan Hansen” actor Kristolyn Lloyd.  

Proceeds from the event, which also featured a live auction hosted by Will Roland, went entirely to the Houston Food Bank.

Additionally, every piece performed throughout the evening was, notably, written by a Houstonian including Beyoncé (Olivia Puckett singing “I’m a Survivor”), Edward Albee (Lora Lee Gayer performing an excerpt from “A Delicate Balance”), and Johnny Nash (Lloyd herself performing “I Can See Clearly”).

Additional performances came courtesy of Lloyd’s current costar Laura Dreyfuss, Tony nominee Nick Cordero, and “Newsies” alum Kara Lindsay.
