Roundabout Theatre Company, under the artistic direction of Todd Haimes, presented its annual spring gala March 10 at the Hammerstein Ballroom. The evening celebrated Academy Award, Olivier and Golden Globe winner Sam Mendes, who was presented with The Jason Robards Award for Excellence in Theatre.
The 2014 gala, entitled In Here, Life Is Beautiful, began at 7 PM with dinner and a live auction, followed by a tribute to Mendes.
All proceeds from the event benefit Roundabout Theatre Company's Musical Theatre Fund and Education programs. Award-winning actress and Roundabout board member Cynthia Nixon makes an appearance on behalf of Education at Roundabout. She participates in a live auction to raise funds for the Roundabout extensive education programs, which serve over 6,000 students and teachers in schools throughout all five boroughs.
You're invited to spend an evening filled with personal tales of difficult choices, bad breaks, worse men and some of the most glorious songs ever written. It's an intimate evening, up close with a legend.
So pull up a chair and order up a drink. Because she's got a life to sing. Tickets as low as $85!
