We’re busy finishing some work for the Emerging Artists Theatre and Actors Fund benefit September 20th at 6:00pm. It should be a fantastic evening so be sure to get your tickets soon!
ABOUT THE BENEFIT
What if you could hear–
Victoria Clark of “The Light in the Piazza” sing a song called,
“Go Light on the Pizza”
Capathia Jenkins of “Caroline, or Change” sing that
“Chamomile is Strange”
Ryan Duncan of “Shrek” and “Altar Boyz” sing about being
“All for Boyz(enberry)”
Could it happen? Definitely. Will it happen? You’ll have to join us to see what’s really on the menu at Emerging Artists Theatre’s first annual benefit, Broadway Sings for EAT’s Supper.
Emerging Artists Theatre (EAT), the acclaimed Off-Broadway company dedicated to fostering new work and artist development, is pairing up award-winning Broadway voices with EAT playwrights – the stars suggest the songs, the playwrights make them playful (in a nod to their company name) with food-centric rewrites, and our supporters get an evening of delicious entertainment.
Join EAT for food, drinks, and theatrical diversions on Monday, September 20th at the Prince George Ballroom, 15 East 27th Street between Fifth and Madison Avenues. Tickets range from $100 to $300. All tickets are tax-deductible and benefit, not only Emerging Artists, but the nonprofits the Actors Fund of America, which addresses the needs of entertainment professionals, and Common Ground, which finds housing for the homeless.
Come see Broadway veterans Victoria Clark, Capathia Jenkins, Ryan Duncan, Chad Kimball, and many more (subject to change). Guests also get a sneak peek at EAT’s Off-Broadway smash comedy Penny Penniworth, plus the chance to win fabulous goodies in our raffle and auctions.
