Gingold Theatrical Group’s 2018 Golden Shamrock Gala will honor three-time Tony nominee Martha Plimpton and actor, producer, and long-time executive director of Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, Tom Viola. The event, to be held March 17 at 3 West Club in New York City, will feature performances by Charles Busch, Tyne Daly, Alison Fraser, Howard McGillin, and more to be announced.
Inspired by George Bernard Shaw’s own activist and humanitarian efforts, the annual gala recognizes individuals in the arts who have made valuable contributions to society.
“Few people have made a greater long-reaching impact to our community than Tom Viola,” said Gingold Theatrical Group’s artistic director David Staller. “Martha Plimpton, aside from being an astonishingly accomplished actress, has impressively stepped up as an outspoken advocate for women’s rights. They’re both long-time friends of GTG and we’re thrilled to have the opportunity to celebrate them like mad.“
Now in its 13th year, GTG is dedicated to producing Shaw’s plays alongside developing new plays and presenting works written by writers who inspired the famed Irish playwright.
