Bill Cosby will host celebrity guests Alec Baldwin, Roger Corman, Ron Howard, Patricia Kluge, Lorne Michael, Molly Shannon and Andrew Tisch as they gather on Dec. 4 at Avery Fisher Hall to celebrate the 35th Anniversary of NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. The sold-out benefit gala will be presented as a “Broadway-style musical salute,” according to NYU production notes. In the performance, a cast of 250 students will perform original music, lyrics and choreography. The gala will also feature a champagne reception, a black-tie dinner and dancing.
The events begins with a one-hour reception at 6:30 on Dec. 4 at Avery Fisher Hall, followed by the performance at 7:30 and dinner and dancing from 9 PM to midnight.
