Aaron Lazar wants to help you to fall asleep. Lazar, who was most recently seen as Larry Murphy on the Dear Evan Hansen national tour, has announced his new project, Broadway Lullabies, an album full of your favorite Broadway stars singing the sweetest drift-off-to-sleep songs. Lazar stopped by Broadway.com's #LiveatFive: Home Edition to share what inspired the album and talked about working on the upcoming TV show Filthy Rich.

With a goal of raising $15,000, Broadway Lullabies is an independent project dependant on Kickstarter fan contributions. "I thought about bringing this to a label and raising money, but I wanted to see if people wanted it," Lazar told Paul Wontorek.

Once we finish recording it, we'll send it to folks who make a certain donation a month before anybody else gets it. We're really open to feedback and ideas because we want it to be fun …
