Stanley Tucci & Anne Tatlock to be Honored at New York Stage and Film's Winter Gala, 11/17
New York Stage and Film have announced that its Annual Winter Gala, to be held this year on Sunday, November 17, 2013 at The Plaza Hotel (770 Fifth Avenue, New York City), will honor Oscar nominated multi-hyphenate Stanley Tucci and business luminary Anne Tatlock. Biographies for each can be found below. It was also announced today that, at the gala, Tony Award winners Lin-Manuel Miranda and Anika Noni Rose will perform selections from Miranda's upcoming The Hamilton Mixtape, which was performed in a concert reading this past summer during the 2013 Powerhouse Season, the annual highlight of the nearly three-decades long collaboration between Vassar College and New York Stage and Film to develop works for the American theater.
"We couldn't be more excited that this year's gala will honor two distinct forces of nature: Stanley Tucci and Anne Tatlock," said Artistic Director Johanna Pfaelzer. "Stanley, an artist of extraordinary gifts, continues to delight audiences as an actor, director, writer, and producer, shifting effortlessly between stage and screen. Anne-the very definition of a powerhouse-has remained committed to the arts throughout her remarkable tenure as a leader in the finance arena. Both are vibrant examples of the standard of excellence that has governed New York Stage and Film's longstanding commitment to new works for the stage and screen, and we look forward to celebrating them!"
Additionally, Pfaelzer noted: "Among the performers at this year's gala will be Lin-Manuel Miranda and Anika Noni Rose, who will be joined by music director Alex Lacamoire to perform selections The Hamilton Mixtape, a new musical in development which caused a sensation at this summer's Powerhouse Season. Lin-Manuel, Anika, and Alex, along with director Thomas Kail, are great friends of New York Stage and Film, and we cannot wait to share this exciting new work with our guests on the 17th."
