Also joining them are Jenni Barber, Mike Birbiglia, Mark Linn-Baker, Andrea Martin, Jack O’Brien, Seth Rudetsky, Lewis J. Stadlen, and Susan Stroman. Jerry Zaks is directing the benefit, with a creative team made up of Justin Townsend (lighting designer), Dan Gerhard (sound designer), and Jason Michael Webb (musical director).

MTC’s fall benefit kicks off with cocktails followed by dinner and a tribute to Lane. All proceeds from the event benefit the theatre. Sue Bovenkerk Slager, Sharon Sullivan, Lisa Towbin, and Susan Winter are co-chairs of the evening.
