Michael E. Merritt, a registered nurse, playwright and producer, united people from around the world to support and uplift theater professionals across the globe by organizing “The Frontline Choir and Friends.” Tyler Wornick, an essential worker and member of the choir said he joined “To give back to those who have given me joy for so many years via the performing arts.” In a time when the lights are out on Broadway and beyond, Brave Hearts for Broadway has been a beacon of hope. Essential health care worker and choir member Abigail Haggard said, “Even though we are largely apart for the holidays this year, we can be united in song.”
