We all remember our big firsts—first kiss, first dance, first nailed audition. Now on Monday, Feb. 10, hear about similar famous milestones in the lives of Broadway stars like Nick Blaemire (“Godspell”), Max von Essen (“Evita”), Julia Murney (“Wicked”) and more, through their performances at the benefit concert “Feels Like the First Time,” presented at (le) Poisson Rouge by The Craptacular. All of the proceeds from the show will go to Children’s Hospital Colorado and to three-year-old Cameron Huffine, who’s recently been diagnosed with Inflammatory Myofibroblastic Cancer.

In addition to the above mentioned stars, performances will also be presented by Tony Award winner Nikki M. James (“The Book of Mormon”), Tony nominees Tony Sheldon (“Priscilla Queen of the Desert”) and Barbara Walsh (“Falsettos”), Andrew Keenan-Bolger (“Newsies”), Kyle Dean Massey (“Next to Normal”), Ben Platt (“The Book of Mormon”), Elizabeth Stanley (“Million Dollar Quartet”), and Andrew Kober (“Hair”), who will host.

Directed by Colin Hanlon (“Rent”), music will be directed by two-time Tony and Grammy winner Stephen Oremus.

According to the Craptacular website, the show will feature “hot peeps,” a secret duet, and include stories about sex and gender bending.

General admission tickets are $25 with no food/drink minimum. Table seating is $25 with a two item minimum, and VIP table seating is $40, plus two items. The show starts at 7 p.m. at (le) Poisson Rouge, located at 158 Bleecker St., in New York City.
