PHOTO CALL: Backstage at the Broadway Beauty Pageant
20 Mar 2012
Four-time Tony Award nominee Tovah Feldshuh (Golda's Balcony, Lend Me a Tenor, Sarava, Yentl) hosted the sixth annual Broadway Beauty Pageant March 19 at Symphony Space. "Mr. Mamma Mia," aka Andrew Chappelle, was named winner the end of the evening.
The annual event benefits New York’s Ali Forney Center. The Broadway Beauty Pageant, directed by Ryan J. Davis, was written and conceived by Jeffery Self. Christopher Denny was the musical director.
Deaf West’s production of SPRING AWAKENING floored the critics when it premiered in California, prompting the Los Angeles Times to write, "It's hard to enumerate all the ways in which Deaf West's SPRING AWAKENING is so very, very good." Now this unapologetically brilliant new production is coming to New York.
