Tony winner Bill Irwin will host the Vineyard Theatre's 40th Anniversary gala February 13.
The event, which will honor Tony and Emmy winner Billy Crudup, will feature appearances by Sam Rockwell, Victor Garber, Michael R. Jackson, Paula Vogel, David Harbour, Veanne Cox, Ann Harada, Brandon Victor Dixon, Tina Satter, and Stephanie D'Abruzzo. Musical performances will include selections from Michael R. Jackson's White Girl in Danger, Vineyard's next musical, and the upcoming Broadway musical New York, New York, featuring performer Emily Skinner presending a previously unproduced song. The gala will be directed by Leigh Silverman, and feature musical direction by Dan Lipton.
Beginning at 6 PM at the Edison Ballroom, the gala will include cocktails, dinner, an auction and live performances. The annual event supports Vineyard’s season, their Good Neighbor ticket accessibility program, and their Fair Pay Initiative.
Crudup made his professional debut with the Vineyard in 1994 in Chiori Miyagawa’s America Dreaming, and he later returned to the Vineyard stage in Adam Rapp’s The Metal Children and in David Cale’s Harry Clarke. Crudup has received four Tony nominations throughout his career, including a win for The Coast of Utopia. He currently stars on Apple TV's The Morning Show, which netted him an Emmy award in 2020.
