Jess’s Team Pick: Autostraddle’s Broadway Benefit Concert Photos & Video

Last month I told you about Tiffany Schleigh, the incredibly generous girl who decided to transform her February 21st birthday party into a benefit concert for Autostraddle on Broadway.  Well, the evening was an incredible success — so much so that folks lined up around the block, leaving standing room only — and this wasn’t even an original RENT cast reunion! In fact, the night was so special that the owner of Rachel’s (the show’s venue) offered Tiffany a weekly show, christened “Cabaret For A Cause: Open Your Heart at Open Mic,” where she will host open mic performers and donate $1 from every drink and $2 from every entree to whatever website, charity or show her little heart desires each night.

So, keep an eye out for upcoming cabaret performances every Monday night beginning in April and once again, THANK YOU TIFFANY!
