News   Signature Theatre Gala to Honor Ruben Santiago-Hudson and Mayor Michael Bloomberg
The Signature Theatre Annual Gala, honoring former mayor Michael R. Bloomberg and Tony Award-winning actor/playwright/director Ruben Santiago-Hudson, will be held April 7 at the Pershing Square Signature Center.

The evening will feature cocktails, dinner and remarks by some of the honorees' friends and collaborators. 

"This year's gala will pay tribute to two men who have made lasting impressions on the history, artistry, and physical home of Signature Theatre: Ruben Santiago-Hudson and Michael R. Bloomberg," press notes state. "Both honorees embody the spirit of community and partnership that for two decades has been at the core of the Signature mission to honor and celebrate the playwright. Ruben, who has been a friend to Signature both onstage (August Wilson's How I Learned What I Learned) and as a director (The Piano Lesson, My Children! My Africa!), has brought many meaningful works to life on Signature stages; and Signature Theatre wouldn't be in its home at The Pershing Square Signature Center without Mr. Bloomberg's leadership, generosity, and guidance."

The evening is co-chaired by Signature trustees Leslie E. Bains and Edward Norton. The honorary committee includes Bill & Karen Ackman, Ty & Holly Burrell, Barry Diller & Diane von Furstenberg, Frank Gehry, John & Amy Griffin, Patricia Harris & Mark Lebow, Stephen McKinley Henderson, Kate D. Levin, Constanza Romero, Jonathan & Diana Rose, Bill Sims Jr., Leslie Uggams, Douglas Turner Ward and George C. Wolfe. The vice chairs include Margot Adams, American Express, Harrison M. Bains, Jr., Richard Berry & Lucy Commoner, Kate & Harold Hope, Nina B. Matis, Christine Millen & Bill Pinzler, Gwen & Peter Norton, Kristen O'Hara, Michael & Betty Rauch, Related Companies, Ed Skyler, Structure Tone Inc. and Time Warner Inc.
