Everybody’s Star

Local theater fans who saw last year’s phenomenal 1776 fell hard for Karen Errington’s incredible pipes and direct, bighearted charm. Now, as Errington fights her second round of breast cancer, two dozen of the city’s top musical-theater performers unite for a benefit titled “Everybody’s Girl. (The Kander and Ebb number is an Errington specialty.) The congregation of talent includes Nathan Granner, Jessalyn Kincaid, Missy Koonce and Cathy Barnett, with Tim Scott acting as master of ceremonies. A silent auction begins at 7 p.m., with the performance at 8 at American Heartland Theater (Crown Center, 2450 Grand). All proceeds, including what’s raised from the full cash bar, go to Errington. To make a reservation and purchase tickets, which are $25, call 816-221-6987 or see
