Presented as a fundraiser for the American Songbook Project’s mission to bring musical performances to city schools, the 7 PM event will celebrate the career of American singer Margaret Whiting. Also honored will be Tony Award-winning director Michael Mayer (American Idiot, Spring Awakening, Thoroughly Modern Millie).
In addition to performances by Baldwin (Finian's Rainbow) and Scanlan (Thoroughly Modern Millie), the benefit will include performances by Moore (Gypsy, Into the Woods), McKay (Threepenny Opera) and television's Jane Kaczmarek ("Malcolm in the Middle").
Name That Tune encourages guests to attend dressed in costumes designed after a song title. Attendees may participate in a fashion show to win prizes. An auction will also take place that includes such items as a private concert with Brooke Shields and John McDaniel in an apartment overlooking Lincoln Center.
Judging the costumes will be Tony Award-winning costume designer William Ivey Long; NY 1 Theatre correspondent Frank DiLella; Jujamcyn president Jordan Roth; casting director Tara Rubin; jazz vocalist Hilary Kole; TimeOutNY theatre critic Adam Feldman; and arts patron Frank Skillern.
