Marisa Tomei, Gina Gershon, Liev Schreiber, Edie Falco and Lorraine Bracco were among the stars celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Off-Broadway theatre company Naked Angels on Valentine's Day.



Tony Award-winning director Joe Mantello staged One Big Ball, which was written and performed by Naked Angels members. The dinner and performance featured a frivolous and inauthentic romp through the company's 25-year history.

 

Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick were honorary co-chairs for the event, which began with a cocktail reception at Roseland Ballroom. All proceeds funded Naked Angels new play development.

Here is a look at the event:
