The gala event, which supports Goodspeed's diverse education programs, has been re-imagined for 2014 and is held at the Madison Beach Club located on Island Avenue in Madison, CT.
"This year we decided to formally name our annual event, honoring musical theatre's brightest stars, Razzle Dazzle," said Michael Price, Goodspeed's executive director, in an earlier statement. "We think it best describes the flair and magic all Goodspeed productions possess, including this spectacular night celebrating the best in arts nationwide."
The award is presented by longtime friend and two-time Tony Award nominee Tony Roberts (Promises, Promises; They're Playing Our Song; Victor/Victoria; Cabaret).
His work has been represented on the Goodspeed stage with Fiorello! (1985), She Loves Me (1978), The Apple Tree (1999) and this summer's 50th anniversary production of Fiddler on the Roof at the Goodspeed Opera House.
Previous honorees include Julie Andrews, Martin Charnin, Kristin Chenoweth, Ira Gershwin, Jerry Herman, William Ivey Long, Thomas Meehan, Michael P. Price, Gerald Schoenfeld, Stephen Schwartz, Susan Stroman, Charles Strouse, Tommy Tune and Paul Williams.
