The evening will celebrate the company's artistic achievements under artistic director Todd Haimes' 30 years of leadership and the future ahead.
Lonny Price will direct a musical tribute featuring leading ladies from previous Roundabout productions: Sutton Foster (Anything Goes), Jane Krakowski (Nine), Audra McDonald (110 in the Shade) and Kelli O'Hara (The Pajama Game). They will each sing the show-stopping numbers from Roundabout productions in which they starred as well as a set of their favorites. Musical direction is by Paul Gemignani.
A Celebration of Your Favorites will begin at 7 PM with dinner and a live auction, followed by the musical performance at 9 PM. Leadership ticket buyers are also invited to a private cocktail party with guest artists and other entertainment VIPs at 6 PM.
All proceeds from this event will benefit Roundabout Theatre Company's Musical Theatre Fund and Education programs.
