Atlantic Theater Company will present its landmark 30th Anniversary Gala on Monday, March 2, 2015 at The Pierre (2 East 61 Street) hosted by Atlantic Founding Ensemble Member and Academy Award nominee Felicity Huffman.
Directed by Neil Pepe with musical direction by Matt Gallagher, the annual gala will celebrate thirty Atlantic seasons with an evening of music and performances from the Atlantic Ensemble and celebrity artists and honor Charles R. Bendit and Paul E. Pariser, co-CEOs of Taconic Investment Partners for their long-time partnership with Atlantic.
The Gala will begin at 6:30pm at The Pierre with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, followed by a three-course dinner at 7:30pm, a live auction, and star-studded musical entertainment.
The annual Gala is Atlantic’s most important fundraising event of the year. Gala contributions make up more than 25% of the total donations to Atlantic in an entire season and will benefit Atlantic’s productions, new play development and arts education initiatives for more than 3,000 public school students across New York City. These programs give children from underserved backgrounds the increasingly rare opportunity to express themselves creatively and promote in-school engagement.
