Broadway and Hollywood Stars to Perform at New York Sundance Benefit

If your clients want to hobnob with celebs and do good at the same time, here's an event worth checking out: The Sundance Institute has announced the first-ever New York benefit celebrating its Theater Program, the leading play development program in the United States. On Monday, March 12 at venues in lower Manhattan, the event will be hosted by Sundance Institute President & Founder Robert Redford and feature performances by some of the theater world’s top talent (who are also Sundance Institute alumni).

The evening will begin at 7 p.m. at the New York Theater Workshop (79 East 4th St.) with a private performance of An Iliad, a solo piece written by Denis O’Hare (Tony-winner for Take Me Out and star of TV's True Blood and American Horror Story) and Lisa Peterson. The evening will continue with a dinner party on the terrace of The Bowery Hotel (335 Bowery – private entrance). Theater Program alumni Christine Ebersole and Scott Frankel (collaborators on Grey Gardens) will perform live, as will Jeanine Tesori and Georgi James (collaborators on Fun Home).
