The Tony Award-winning stars Matthew Broderick and Nathan Lane were joined by a host of special guests when they served as Masters of Ceremonies for the Vineyard Theatre Gala honoring the five-time Tony Award-winning director and choreographer Susan Stroman at the company's annual benefit last night, February 28 at 6:00pm at the Hudson Theatre at the Millennium Broadway Hotel.  Broadwayworld was on hand for the evening and brings you photo coverage of the starry arrivals below.  Check back soon for performance coverage!

On hand to honor Ms. Stroman were a bevy of performers with whom she has worked through the years, including Nathan Lane, Matthew Broderick, Roger Bart, James Gray and Gary Beach, all of whom starred in THE PRODUCERS; Joshua Henry and the cast of THE SCOTTSBORO BOYS; Boyd Gaines and Leigh Zimmerman from CONTACT; Rebecca Luker from THE MUSIC MAN and SHOW BOAT; Karen Ziemba from CRAZY FOR YOU; Debra Monk from STEEL PIER; Veanne Cox from FLORA, THE RED MENACE; Colman Domingo from THE SCOTTSBORO BOYS; Craig Bierko from THE MUSIC MAN; and Fred Applegate from HAPPINESS, among others.

Also on hand to honor Susan Stroman were John Kander, whose musical THE SCOTTSBORO BOYS, written with the late Fred Ebb, debuted last year at The Vineyard - where it received the Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Musical and Ms. Stroman received one for Outstanding Choreography - prior to its transfer this fall to the Lyceum Theatre on Broadway. Ms. Stroman previously choreographed The Vineyard's revival of Kander and Ebb's musical FLORA, THE RED MENACE, which was her first collaboration with Kander, Ebb and book writer David Thompson.

The Gala featured performances from THE SCOTTSBORO BOYS, THE PRODUCERS, CONTACT, CRAZY FOR YOU, the revival of FLORA, THE RED MENACE and more.

In addition to THE PRODUCERS, Ms. Stroman also received Tony Awards as choreographer for CRAZY FOR YOU, SHOWBOAT and CONTACT. Her other Broadway credits include OKLAHOMA!, YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN, THE MUSIC MAN and STEEL PIER. She directed HAPPINESS at Lincoln Center Theater. Along with the Tony Awards, her work has been honored with Olivier, Drama Desk, Outer Critics, Lucille Lortel, George Abbott and Astaire Awards.
