Lane will host the Off-Broadway company's annual gala, which also honors The Union Square Partnership, Feb. 9 at 6 PM at The Rainbow Room. Rose will perform at the event. Others scheduled to appear include Lucie Arnaz, Marcia Gay Harden, Patricia Clarkson, [title of show] co-stars Hunter Bell and Jeff Bowen, playwrights Craig Lucas and Terrence McNally as well as McKenzie Frey, Angela Grovey and Rebecca Naomi Jones as "The Fates 3" from The Vineyard's WIG OUT!.

Seldes' six-decade-spanning career has included notable roles on the stage and screen. The actress won a Tony Award for Edward Albee's A Delicate Balance — which originated at the Vineyard. Last seen on Broadway opposite Angela Lansbury in Deuce, she has also graced the Broadway stage in Equus, Ivanov, 45 Seconds From Broadway, Father's Day, Deathtrap, Ring Round the Moon and Dinner at Eight — Tony-nominated for the latter four. Other credits include Dedication or the Stuff of Dreams and Beckett/Albee.

Previous recipients of Vineyard honors include Pulitzer Prize-winning playwrights Edward Albee (Three Tall Women) and Paula Vogel (How I Learned To Drive).
