Presented May 2 at the Highline Ballroom, the evening will offer scenes and songs from past and future Soho Rep productions and will honor Seldes (Tony winner for A Delicate Balance) for her career on stage. Performers will also include Jomama Jones and The Lisps; the latter will offer an excerpt from their new musical Futurity. Tim Blake Nelson will host.
Seldes' most recent Broadway outing was Terrence McNally's Deuce in 2007, starring opposite fellow Tony winner Angela Lansbury. Seldes has been Tony-nominated for her performances in Father's Day, Deathtrap, Ring Round the Moon and Dinner at Eight. Her extensive stage work includes The Play About the Baby, Three Tall Women, Equus and Dedication or the Stuff of Dreams. From 1969 to 1992 she served on the faculty of the Juilliard School.
Doors will open at 6:30 PM. For tickets visit SohoRep, or phone (212) 647-1828.
