Playwrights Jeremy O. Harris (Slave Play) and Heidi Schreck (What the Constitution Means to Me) will co-host New York Theatre Workshop’s February 11 gala at Capitale. The writers’ respective plays were both seen in sold-out runs at NYTW last fall. Shreck’s What the Constitution Means to Me will arrive on Broadway March 14.
The benefit will include performances from many actors who created roles in NYTW’s biggest hits, including previously announced Rent veterans Anthony Rapp and Daphne Rubin-Vega, as well as Broadway-bound Hadestown cast member Amber Gray.
Also set to appear are Tony Award winner Alice Ripley (Paula Vogel’s A Civil War Christmas), Nathaly Lopez (What’s It All About), and Cristina Monet (Disco Clone).
Andrew Neisler directs the gala honoring Founding Trustee Stephen Graham. The gala will be scripted by Emma Tattenbaum-Fine with music direction by Brian Usifer.
Tickets, starting at $1,250, with tables starting at $12,500, are available by visiting NYTW.org.
