In recognition of its 30th Anniversary Season, SpeakEasy Stage will hold a special digital concert, "Celebrating 30 Seasons of Groundbreaking Theatre," premiering Thursday, November 19 at 7:30 p.m., and streaming through Monday, November 23.

Broadway stars De'Lon Grant ("Come from Away") and Miguel Cervantes ("Hamilton"), who starred respectively in SpeakEasy's productions of "The Scottsboro Boys" and "Bat Boy," will headline the event, which will also feature such celebrated SpeakEasy alumni as Leigh Barrett, Daniel James Belnavis, Kerry A. Dowling, Jennifer Ellis, Crystin Gilmore, Sam Simahk, Erica Spyres, and Kathy St. George.

Mr. Grant will also serve as host.

The line-up will include hit songs from some of SpeakEasy's most memorable productions, including "The Color Purple," "Big Fish," "Next to Normal," "Passion," "The Light in the Piazza," "A New Brain," "The Scottsboro Boys," and the company's megahit, "Bat Boy — The Musical."

Longtime SpeakEasy Music Director Paul S. Katz will once again preside over the keys, and SpeakEasy Founder and Producing Artistic Director Paul Daigneault will direct.

"We are grateful to have had the opportunity to have told over 150 powerful and intimate stories over the years, and can't think of a better way to thank our audiences than to offer them a front-row seat to this once-in-a-lifetime event," said Daigneault. "Whether you are a long-time SpeakEasy subscriber, Boston theater enthusiast, or just a show tune fan, this is one concert you won't want to miss."

Tickets start at $30, with discounts available for alumni and artists.

Event sponsors will also have access to an exclusive post-show virtual meet-and-greet with the cast, and receive a bottle of wine and commemorative SpeakEasy glasses.

All proceeds will go to benefit SpeakEasy Stage.
