Tony Award winners Tommy Tune, Brian Stokes Mitchell, Chita Rivera, and more Broadway stars will honor Tony- and Golden Globe-winning leading lady Angela Lansbury at Night of Stars: A Broadway Celebration! January 12 at the Raymond F. Kravis Center for the Performing Arts in Palm Beach, Florida.
In addition to performances from the likes of Tune (My One and Only), Mitchell (Kiss Me, Kate), and Rivera (The Rink and Kiss of the Spider Woman), the event will include Lansbury being given the Kravis Center’s “Legend in Arts” Award.
Lansbury’s long and busy career includes leading roles in the original Broadway productions of Sweeney Todd, Mame, Dear World, and Anyone Can Whistle, as well as revivals of Gypsy, A Little Night Music, and Blithe Spirit. Lansbury, who turns 93 this year, earned her first Oscar nomination in 1945 and went on to win five Tony Awards, most recently in 2009. Along the way she won many other accolades, including 18 Emmy nominations—most for her hit TV series Murder, She Wrote.
Also taking part in Night of Stars are Claybourne Elder (Broadway's Sunday in the Park with George), Kate Davis, Nova Payton, and Bria Skonberg, along with Kravis Center Pops Orchestra, conducted by Luke Frazier.
Robert Pullen is set to direct the event.
