The Actors’ Temple will celebrate its unique role in American, Jewish, and show-business history—as well as its tradition of being a place of acceptance, spirituality, and creativity—at The Actors’ Temple 100th Anniversary Gala Celebration March 13 at 6 PM at the Friars Club, 57 East 55th Street, New York.
The evening, which will feature dinner and a show, will honor actors Tovah Feldshuh and Jackie Hoffman (both of whom will perform) and Barbara Bova. Performers also include Andrew Beall (composer of Song of Solomon), singers Anna Bergman and Adrienne Haan, comedian Bob Greenberg, and concert violinist Marina Kifferstein.
The event, produced by Carol Ostrow, supports the Actors’ Temple’s mission to “provide a dynamic spiritual home for Jews, and a creative home for Jewish and non-Jewish artists who can use its affordable jewel-box theatre.”
A 100th Year Capital Campaign to preserve the Temple’s historic building at 339 West 47th Street is also being launched. Constructed in 1923, the Actors’ Temple building is a federally designated national landmark.
