The evening will also feature appearances by Walter Bobbie, Cherry Jones, Rob Marshall, Paul Rudnick, Max von Essen and more.

The benefit will take place at 583 Park Ave., and will be directed and conceived by Richard Maltby, Jr. (Ain’t Misbehavin’). The creative team will include John Lee Beatty, Ben Stanton, Dan Gerhard, Eric Svejcar and Todd Cross.

Baranski, who made her Broadway debut in the Tom Stoppard hit The Real Thing, is a longtime MTC collaborator and board member; having been associated with the theatre since her performance in the 1982 production of Sally and Marsha. She has since been featured in the MTC stagings of Regrets Only; The Loman Family Picnic; Lips Together, Teeth Apart; and It’s Only a Play. She currently stars in "The Good Wife."

All proceeds from the benefit will benefit MTC. For more information on the organization's slate of Broadway and Off-Broadway productions, visit
