Off-Broadway's TACT/The Actors Company Theatre, which is currently celebrating its 20th anniversary season, presents a benefit performance of Philip Dunning and George Abbott's rarely-seen 1926 crime drama Broadway Feb. 4 at 7 PM at the Scholastic Auditorium at 557 Broadway.

The evening features 15 TACT Company members, including Mark Alhadeff, Eve Bianco, Chris Burns, Nora Chester, Richard Ferrone, Jack Koenig, Victoria Mack, Ron McClary, Geoffrey Molloy, Margaret Nichols, John Plumpis, Gregory Salata, Justine Salata, Scott Schaefer, Margo White, Lynn Wright and guest artist Leighton Bryan.

"Set in the seamy New York underworld of illicit and glamorous nightclubs, Broadway is a hard-boiled crime drama that pits good against bad, pure against corrupt, and hoofers against gangsters," according to press notes. "Slangy chorines and bootleg thugs mix in a killer cocktail of sex, liquor, and revenge."

The benefit has lighting design by Stephen Arnold, sound design by Josh Millican and projection design by Stephen Kunken. Scott Alan Evans directs.



Tickets are $65 (show only) and $100 (show and a reception with the artists immediately following the performance) and may be purchased online through the company’s web site (tactnyc.org) or by phone at (800) 838-3006. For more information call the TACT offices at (212) 645-8228.
