Broadway Hearts is the sum of all people involved
and I’m honored that I have such an extraordinary, big hearted team, that give their time and talent so generously.

Broadway Hearts grew out of a hope to make a difference in a child’s life, through music, song and laughter, if even for an hour or so. I feel very fortunate to have these wonderful friends by my side. We have a tremendous amount of fun together, doing something that we feel very lucky to be allowed to do.

Outreach has always been an important part of my life, but it became very personal in 2009, when I learned I was positive for the BRCA genetic mutation, which predisposes me to a myriad of cancers, including pancreatic, ovarian and breast cancers. It started me on a fast and furious quest for knowledge, which quickly turned into a passion to help others navigate their way through the, oftentimes exceptionally challenging, BRCA world, to advocate for quality of life for both survivors and previvors, and to help raise funds for genetic cancer research. I’m currently involved with organizations including FORCE, Bright Pink, Discovery To Cure, Imerman Angels and The Basser Center. These organizations are available to anyone at anytime, please reach out if you are in need.

My ultimate goal for Broadway Hearts, is to take the program, both scholarship and visits, nationwide, and have Broadway Hearts be a household name that is synonymous with joy and healing. I’m hard at work trying to make this a reality!

Broadway Hearts is dedicated to my father Peter Radetsky, I don’t know how I ever got so fortunate to be your daughter. I am forever grateful.

Currently performing in The Phantom of the Opera, on Broadway.
