On September 19, a slew of Broadway’s finest gathered to support Honest Accomplice Theatre, founded by Maggie Keenan-Bolger and Rachel Sullivan.

In attendance were performers Shakina Nayfack, Laura Benanti, Nikki M. James, Celia Keenan-Bolger, Andrew Keenan-Bolger, John Conlee, Tommar Wilson, Susan Blackwell and more. The Make Some Noise Gala took place on Manhattan’s Lower East Side to raise money to benefit the Trans Literacy Project, the upcoming production of ReconfFIGUREd and future touring productions of Birds and the Bees: Unabridged.

According to the company’s website, “Honest Accomplice Theatre has a mission to generate dialogue and stimulate change by focusing on topics that are often silenced, seen as shameful, or portrayed as one-dimensional, specifically through the lens of the women and trans experience. To deliver on this mission, Honest Accomplice Theatre produces work by the community, with the community, and for the community.”

The gala featured Celebrity Game Night, hosted by Susan Blackwell, as well as activities such as Tarot Card Readings, photo booths and more.

Guests could wear buttons listing their preferred pronouns (He, She, They, Squee etc.) in line with the mission of Trans Literacy.
