Cast members of the hit television show "Ally McBeal" will attend New York Stage and Film's annual fundraising event on Nov. 23, at 7 PM, at the Supper Club in Manhattan. Among those expected to show up are Calista Flockhart, Greg Germann and Lisa Nicole Carson.
Many of the actors in "Ally McBeal" have a heavy theatrical background. Flockhart, who plays McBeal, has been part of the theatre scene since the late '80s, most recently appearing as Natasha in the Roundabout Theatre Company's production of Three Sisters. Other NY shows include Bovver Boys, The Glass Menagerie and Mad Forest.
Germann is perhaps best known in theatre circles for his performance as would-be Reagan killer John Hinkley in Stephen Sondheim's Assassins.
Actor-director Griffin Dunne (Search and Destroy ) will direct the evening's entertainment, which will star Peter Gallagher (Guys and Dolls ), Tony Shalhoub (Waiting for Godot ) and others. The event will also feature a silent auction including a walk-on on "Ally McBeal."
The Supper Club is located at 240 W. 47th St. For tickets ($200-$10,000), call (212) 239-2334. -- By Robert Simonson
