In tribute to outgoing artistic director Dan Sullivan's 17-year tenure at Seattle Rep, the theatre will hold a benefit for its education and outreach programs, May 19.
Titled, "Inspecting Dan: The Sullivan Chronicles," the event pokes fun at Sullivan's hit comedy Inspecting Carol and his long-standing professional partnership with Wendy Heidi Chronicles Wasserstein. Co-hosting will be playwright Wasserstein (whose An American Daughter began at the abovementioned Workshop) and actress Amy Irving (recently on Broadway in The Three Sisters).
Scheduled to appear at the party are John Aylward, Barbara Dirickson, Charlayne Woodard, R. Hamilton Wright, Jon Robin Baitz, Judd Hirsch, Herb Gardner, Michael Learned, Jeannie Carson, Sarah Brooke, Marianne Owen, John Proccacino and other performers. Tickets to the gala are still available at the Friend ($50), Supporter ($75) and reveller ($100) levels.
