Martin Scorsese, Alec Baldwin and more were on hand to honor Dean Mary Schmidt Campbell's 20th year as the head of Tisch School of the Arts with their annual gala, Ordinary Miraculous, on Thursday April 19.
The Ordinary Miraculous Gala functioned as a celebration of the Tisch community who has altered the cultural landscape and the future change makers who will continue that legacy. The red carpet event included a champagne reception, live performances and a star studded tribute to Tisch. The evening was directed and produced by Bill Castellino.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
