The 1980 production of the Gilbert and Sullivan operetta was adapted by William Elliot and choreographed by Graciela Daniele. It was first staged at the Delacorte by Wilford Leach in August 1980 prior to transferring to a Tony Award-winning Broadway run in December.
Additional casting for the gala performance has not been announced. Last summer, Kline co-starred with Meryl Streep in a gala reading of Romeo and Juliet at the Delacorte.
The evening will also pay tribute to late Academy Award-winning writer Nora Ephron ("When Harry Met Sally," "Sleepless in Seattle"), who died June 26, 2012. Ephron's new play Lucky Guy opened on Broadway April 1.
