The Alliance of Resident Theatres/New York (A.R.T./NY) has renamed its annual meeting, which is now being billed as "Curtain Call." The June 26 Curtain Call will be held in conjunction with A.R.T./NY's Fifth Annual Local Hero Wards ceremony at the BAM Harvey Theatre in Brooklyn. The keynote speaker will be Anne Bogart, with an introduction by Cherry Jones. A.R.T./NY board members Rob Simon from JP Morgan and Lisa Frigand from Con Ed will be assisted by fellow presenters Kirsten Childs, Nancy Giles and Carolyn McCormick as they fete a variety of vendors who have demonstrated a sensitivity and dedication to the special needs of their non-profit theatre clients.
The June 26 reception for Curtain Call and the Hero Awards begins at 6 PM. The program itself follows at 7:15.
