The 7 PM evening will feature a conversation between Transport Group artistic director Jack Cummings III and Tony Award winner Tommy Tune. Previous "Evening With" guests have included Michael John LaChiusa, Jeanine Tesori and John Doyle.
A nine-time Tony Award winner for his performances, direction or choreography, Tune has helped create such Broadway shows as Nine, My One & Only, A Day in Hollywood/A Night in the Ukraine, The Will Rogers Follies and Grand Hotel. He helmed Off-Broadway's The Club and Cloud Nine, and he spent two years starring in the Las Vegas production of the spectacular EFX at the MGM Grand Hotel, where he was awarded Best Production Star of the Year in 2001. Tune was recently seen in the national tour of Dr. Dolittle.
