Photo Coverage: William Morris Party

October 31
5:37 PM 2006

On Monday night, October 30th the William Morris Talent Agency again celebrated the start of the new theatre season and--as is their tradition--a charity, as well. This year, they honored the season and the Open Door Organization with a star-studded party at The Palm Restaurant (250 West 50th Street). Among many highlights of the night was a touching speech by Angela Lansbury honoring long-time (and her own!) agent Biff Liff, who was presented with a caricature on the wall of the restaurant to commemorate his many years of service in the theatre community.

Also, Pamela Wasserstein (the late Wendy Wasserstein's neice, and the inspiration for Pamela's First Musical) accepted a donation by the William Morris Agency on behalf of the Open Doors Organization. BroadwayWorld was there to share in, and to cover all the fun, as well as to celebrate the continued success of both organizations!
