Stanley Tucci Will Be Honored at New York Stage and Film Gala
By Adam Hetrick
New York Stage and Film will honor Tony and Academy Award nominee Stanley Tucci during its Nov. 17 gala at the Plaza Hotel.
Tucci ("The Lovely Bones," Frankie & Johnny in the Claire de Lune, Brighton Beach Memoirs, Lend Me a Tenor) will be honored alongside business luminary Anne Tatlock.
The gala will feature performances by Tony Award winners Lin-Manuel Miranda (In the Heights) and Anika Noni Rose (Caroline, or Change), who will perform selections from Miranda's new work The Hamilton Mixtape, which was performed last summer during the 2013 Powerhouse Season.
Also on hand will be Tony-winning music director Alex Lacamoire and Tony-nominated director Thomas Kail.
"We couldn't be more excited that this year’s gala will honor two distinct forces of nature: Stanley Tucci and Anne Tatlock," artistic director Johanna Pfaelzer said in a statement. "Stanley, an artist of extraordinary gifts, continues to delight audiences as an actor, director, writer, and producer, shifting effortlessly between stage and screen. Anne—the very definition of a powerhouse—has remained committed to the arts throughout her remarkable tenure as a leader in the finance arena. Both are vibrant examples of the standard of excellence that has governed New York Stage and Film's longstanding commitment to new works for the stage and screen, and we look forward to celebrating them!"
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.
