The evening will honor Tony Award-winning producer Roger Horchow (Annie) and Emmy Award and Golden Globe Award winner Tony Shalhoub (“Monk”).
“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to pay tribute to Roger Horchow and Tony Shalhoub,” said artistic director Johanna Pfaelzer in a statement. “Tony is a true actor’s actor, beloved by his colleagues, and a constant delight to audiences, whether on screen or on stage. Roger’s innovative entrepreneurial successes, his philanthropy, and his passionate commitment to live theater are inspiring examples for us all. And what better time to celebrate these two gentlemen than this fall, as they return to Broadway, with Annie and Golden Boy!”
Honorary co-chairs of the 2012 Gala Committee are Tim Daly, Sally Horchow, David Hyde Pierce, Jennifer Westfeldt and Jon Hamm.
All proceeds from the evening will benefit New York Stage and Film’s support of artists from around the country in the development and production of original work for theatre and film.
