The exceedingly charming Jay Armstrong Johnson has won audiences' hearts in shows including On the Town, Hands on a Hardbody and The Most Happy Fella, and in recent years he has also created a string of Hocus Pocus-themed shows for Halloweens. For this edition, he ups the ante with an elaborate concert, directed by Ahmad Simmons, that finds the movie’s witchy Sanderson Sisters—Johnson as Winifred, flanked by Allison Robinson and Amanda Williams Ware—corralling other film baddies to join in a wicked scheme. Among the Broadway types joining the fun are Gavin Creel, Major Attaway, Nick Rashad Burroughs, Robyn Hurder, Alanna Saunders, Claire Saunders and James Scully. Proceeds benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.
