The American Theatre Wing has announced that its annual Gala will be held Sept. 16 at The Plaza Hotel.



The evening will honor director and producer Harold Prince, recipient of a record-breaking 21 Tony Awards.

Anki Leeds and CeCe Black will serve as Gala co-chairs.

“Harold Prince is not only a beloved and accomplished icon, but also a visionary who has consistently pushed the art form forward,” said Heather Hitchens, executive director of the American Theatre Wing, in a statement. “It’s hard to think of another artist who has made the kind of impact he has to the American Theatre, and we are delighted to have the opportunity to honor him in this way.”

All proceeds will benefit the educational and outreach programs of the American Theatre Wing.

The evening includes cocktails, dinner and performances. For more information or to purchase tickets or a table, contact Nicole Gardner (212) 765-0606, ext. 302.
