The American Theatre Wing (William Ivey Long, Chair; Heather Hitchens, Executive Director) announced today that its annual gala, held last night at the Plaza Hotel, was the most successful in the organization's history, raising nearly $700,000 (besting the previous record, which was set in 2012, by approximately $100,000). All proceeds from the evening will benefit the education and outreach programs of the American Theatre Wing, which include SpringboardNYC, the Theatre Intern Group, the National Theatre Company Grants and the Jonathan Larson Grants, and will also support free access for students, aspiring professionals, and the general public to programming on AmericanTheatreWing.org, including the long running television show "Working in the Theatre."

The sold-out, black-tie event was held at The Plaza Hotel and honored legendary director and producer Harold Prince for his lifelong dedication and invaluable contributions to the theatrical community. The evening's program featured a selection of numbers from Harold Prince-affiliated shows, performed by a glittering array of Broadway stars, including Glenn Close, Santino Fontana, Sierra Boggess, Emily Skinner, Richard Kind, Jim Wann, and LaChanze. Angela Lansbury presented Mr. Prince with his honor.

Among the approximately 450 guests in attendance were Patrick Stewart, Alan Cumming, Kim Cattrall, Star Jones, Tyne Daly, Oliver Platt, John Benjamin Hickey, Shuler Hensley, Judy Kaye, Liz Claman, Pia Lindstrom, and Jo Sullivan Loesser.
