Alan L. Bain, chairman of The American-Scottish Foundation, will also be honored at the event, for which Christie Brinkley is serving as Honorary Chair.
The Broadway Beacon Awards are held annually to support Inside Broadway's mission of bringing theatre to under-served public school students in New York City. The evening will be hosted by FOX5 entertainment reporter Anna Gilligan, and entertainment will include students from JHS 278 in Brooklyn who are members of the Inside Broadway school arts program.
"We are so thrilled to be honoring these remarkably talented individuals for their contributions to New York and the theatre…the Broadway Beacon Awards is always a wonderful way for us to end the theatre season and this year is no exception," Inside Broadway executive director Michael Presser said in a statement.
