Who We Are
Born for Broadway was established in 2003 at Marymount Manhattan College, where Founder & Executive Producer Sarah Galli was enrolled as a performance major. Sarah created the show as a way to give back after her brother, Jeff, suffered a spinal cord injury in a diving accident. Born for Broadway brings a spotlight to the advanced medical research and quality of care necessary for individuals living with paralysis.
Out of its humble beginnings on a college stage, Born for Broadway has evolved into a renowned annual musical cabaret that brings together advocates, Broadway stars, elected officials, and the public, all to benefit paralysis related causes.
Manhattan Borough President Scott M. Stringer declared May 21st, 2012, “Born for Broadway Appreciation Day” in the Borough of Manhattan. Members of Born for Broadway, including Sarah Galli, Marcia Milgrom Dodge, and Ali Stroker, rang the closing bell at NASDAQ on April 30th, 2012, in honor of the event. Born for Broadway has been featured on “Today,” “Good Day New York,” and in the New York Post, Variety, and Backstage, among other outlets, proving its place as a highly regarded advocacy program.
