Both 2.0
SEPTEMBER 30:  TICKETS ARE AVAILABLE FOR SALE AT THE DOOR.
BOX OFFICE OPENS AT 6, SHOW IS AT 7:30

After a sold-out inaugural year, gay, double amputees David Connolly and Taylor Long are back to present BOTH 2.0, a cabaret to raise funds and awareness for the War Amps CHAMP (Child Amputee) Program. The benefit concert will take place on Sunday, September 30, 2018 at 7:30 p.m. at the intimate Glenn Gould Studio located in the Canadian Broadcasting Centre building, 250 Front St. W, Toronto, ON.

BOTH 2.0 shares Connolly and Long's personal stories of growing up in Nova Scotia, discovering their love for musical theatre, and navigating the ups and downs of living with double amputation. A catalogue of songs from shows including Dear Evan Hansen, Hamilton, Waitress, The Last Five Years and Godspell will be accompanied by Anthony Bastianon.

Nova Scotia native and longtime CHAMP Ambassador David Connolly made his Broadway debut at age 19 in the revival of Shenandoah and went on to perform in theatres across Canada including The Stratford Festival. Now a director and choreographer for stage and screen, his credits include Mamma Mia!, Miss Saigon and Hairspray, artists such as Katy Perry, kd lang and Sarah Brightman and several CBC television series including Andrew Lloyd Webbers' How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria?, The Doodlebops and The Moblees.

Taylor Long was born and raised in Halifax before moving to Toronto where he began writing as Senior Editor for BroadwayWorld.com Toronto. Long studied classical voice at Dalhousie University and has appeared in various regional musical theatre and opera productions including The Sound of Music, The Last Five Years, How to Succeed in Business and Les Misérables. He spent over 10 years as a counsellor with The War Amps of Canada, for which he was presented with a Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal in 2013. Long currently works for the Canadian Opera Company.

The War Amps CHAMP (Child Amputee) Program offers comprehensive services to child amputees and their families, including financial assistance, regional seminars and peer support. Financial assistance is provided for standard artificial limbs, recreational devices, travel to prosthetic centres and bursaries for post-secondary education.
