Photo Coverage: UJA Honors Ted Chapin with 2014 Excellence in Theater Award
Just last night, Broadway's elite gathered to honor Ted Chapin, president of Rodgers & Hammerstein (a division of Imagem), at UJA-Federation of New York's Theater Division 2014 Excellence in Theater Award Dinner. Among the attendees included Tony Award nominees and Rodgers + Hammerstein's Cinderella co-stars Santino Fontana and Laura Osnes, and Billy Stritch, Grammy-winning composer, musical director, and performer. BroadwayWorld brings you photos from the special event below!
Chapin's career began as production or directorial assistant for such Broadway productions as Follies, The Rothschilds, and The Unknown Soldier and His Wife. His book, Everything Was Possible: The Birth of the Musical Follies, won an ASCAP/Deems Taylor Award and a Special Jury Prize for Distinguished Achievement by the Theatre Library Association. He serves on several boards, including the American Theatre Wing, where he was chair for four years, and New York City Center, where he was the chair of the Encores! Advisory Committee from its inception. Chapin served as a Tony Awards nominator for two seasons and is currently a member of the Tony Administration and Management Committees.
