Take Me to the World is a special 2-hour show that also served as a fundraiser for the Artists Striving to End Poverty (ASTEP). It featured a star-studded ensemble including Lin-Manuel Miranda, Meryl Streep, Patti LuPone, Neil Patrick Harris, Kristin Chenoweth, Josh Groban, Aaron Tveit, Jake Gyllenhaal, and our very own Lea Salonga.

Lea performed a hair-raising rendition of "Loving You" from the musical Passion and delivered a heartfelt tribute to Sondheim whose works include Sweeney Todd, Into The Woods, and West Side Story. "I just wanted to wish you a very happy 90th birthday. I think it is absolutely fantastic that you have allowed for ASTEP to raise funds as part of this celebration."
