Gingold Theatrical Group, under the leadership of David Staller, honored philanthropist Anita Jaffe and playwright/actor Charles Busch at its Annual Golden Shamrock Gala, earlier this week at Manhattan Penthouse (80 Fifth Ave at 14th Street). The GTG Golden Shamrock Award is given annually for artistic contribution to society. Past honorees include Terrence McNally, Judith Ivey, Brian Murray, and Robert Osborne. BroadwayWorld was there for the special night abd you can check out photo coverage below!

CHARLES BUSCH's latest play, The Tribute Artist, is currently running Off-Broadway at Primary Stages Theatre Company in NYC. He is the author and star of such plays as The Divine Sister, Vampire Lesbians of Sodom, and The Tale of the Allergist's Wife, which ran for nearly two years on Broadway and received a Tony nomination for Best Play. He wrote and starred in the film versions of his plays, Psycho Beach Party and Die Mommie Die, the latter of which won him the Best Performance Award at the Sundance Film Festival. In 2003, Mr. Busch received a special Drama Desk Award for career achievement as both performer and playwright. Along the way, he has also written a novel "Whores of Lost Atlantis," directed a film "A Very Serious Person" and is a MAC Award-winning cabaret performer, who has performed in Provincetown, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Atlanta, New Orleans and in New York at 54 Below and the Ballroom. He is the proud subject of the acclaimed documentary film The Lady in Question is Charles Busch.

ANITA JAFFE, a long-time supporter of art, film and theatre, is a member of the Board of Trustees of The Actors' Fund, the Broadway Walk of Stars, and was for many years on the board of the American Theatre Wing. Anita has long been a philanthropic supporter of many humanitarian organizations worldwide. Originally from Rio de Janeiro, she is a proud long-time resident of Manhattan.

Now in its ninth year, Gingold Theatrical Group is dedicated to presenting plays about Human Rights using the work of George Bernard Shaw as its guide. GTG's goal is to carve a permanent niche for the work of G.B.S. within the social and cultural life of New York-bringing his canon and precepts to larger audiences while encouraging individuals to breathe these humanitarian ideals into their contributions for the future. GTG produces the annual SHAW NEW YORK festival, the monthly PROJECT SHAW, the PRESS CUTTINGS new play development and many outreach programs.
