Playhouse on Park will host its inaugural Tony Awards Gala with a chance to watch Broadway’s biggest night – complete with a red carpet and high fashion – right in West Hartford.
Come be our guest and strut your stuff on the red carpet at Playhouse on Park – and bring some friends while you’re at it! Tickets for Playhouse on Park’s 1st Annual Tony Awards Gala fundraiser are now on sale. Think of it as a gigantic Tony Awards viewing party! We’ll roll out a red carpet (literally), open our lobby for a fabulous cocktail hour, and will feature a live broadcast of Broadway’s biggest night on a nine-foot indoor screen.
Actors and Broadway fanatics Zak West and Brian Ziemann are lined up to host! They are the ideal pair to welcome guests to the gala. In their words: “Our first date was spent seeing a production of Spelling Bee in 2010. Somewhere around 450 shows later it is still one of our favorite things to do together. While we often have differing opinions on the material (Brian prefers musicals, Zak plays) it is always beneficial to have the others opinion help to process the performance. We have been fortunate enough to see every show running on Broadway for the last three years which has truly helped to broaden our tastes, and also made us realize that even Broadway has highs and lows.”
Prepare to get booked! Actress and comedian Andee Buccheri is standing by as the fashion police, ready to inspect your look from top to bottom. Will you dazzle the red carpet, or will you be a crime of fashion? The fashion police will let you know!
Guests are welcome to dress for the occasion. Black tie is optional, or come as one of your favorite Broadway star! The evening will also include a red carpet photographer, raffle, trivia, and ballot to guess who will win the coveted award for each category.
