She may not be hosting the Tonys this year, but Rosie O'Donnell still plugs Broadway tirelessly on her weekday TV show, and the Drama League has taken note. The League's annual gala benefit will be dedicated to the Grease! star, with guests (some performing) to include Patti LuPone, Julie Andrews, Audra McDonald, Katie Couric, Tony Bennett, Tyne Daly, Alan Cumming, Andrea Martin, Stephanie Mills, Mary Tyler Moore, Betty Buckley and Bebe Neuwirth. The Mar. 15 event will take place at the Hotel Pierre (60th Street & Fifth Ave.). Tickets for the whole event start at $375, though show-only tickets are available at $100 ($75 for students). For information on tickets (212) 302-2100.
Director of Membership & Marketing, Eric Winick, told Playbill On-Line this would be the 15th annual gala and would also celebrate the 15th anniversary of the Drama League's directors' project. "Michael Mayer, Mark Brokaw and Christopher Ashley all came through the program," Winick said.
