Over a month since Russia first invaded Ukraine, the Broadway community is once again gathering in support for the Ukrainian people. 

This Sunday at 11:30am, stars will come together in Duffy Square by the infamous steps in Times Square to show solidarity with the cause and send a message of hope to the folks in the Eastern European country. During the vigil, dubbed "Broadway for Ukraine," stars will be performing "Do You Hear the People Sing?" from Les Miserables.

Specific verses will be assigned to actors and spectators are invited to join in song during the classic track's chorus. The organizers have actually released the song's sheet music and lyrics for people to learn prior to the gathering. Find all that information right here.

There are other ways to participate and show support as volunteers are still needed to set up, to take over the videography during the event and help out with crowd control. You can sign up to be a volunteer by signing this waiver, release and authorization form.

This isn't the Broadway community's only upcoming display of solidarity. On April 29, a group of Broadway stars will live stream a concert from the Skylight Run. All profits will be donated to the International Rescue Committee, which provides shelter, first aid, food, medicine and protective kits to Ukrainians. 

Participating actors include Carole Demas, Ilene Kristen, Sarah Rice and James Canning. 

You can buy tickets for the tribute concert here.
