Manhattan Association of Cabarets and Clubs (MAC), dedicated to advancing the art and business of live entertainment, held their 28th Annual MAC Awards celebration last evening at BB King's Blues club in Times Square. Winners in twenty-five categories were announced. The show was hosted by the vivacious singer, band leader, multiple MAC Award winner and 2014 Nominee, Terese Genecco. The gala was produced by Julie Miller and directed by Lennie Watts, the current MAC President. Don Rebic served as Musical Director. Presenters included Will Friedwald of the Wall Street Journal and designer Bob Mackie. CLICK HERE for a full list of winners.

Two Lifetime Achievement Awards were previously announced for Linda Lavin and Marilyn Maye, as well as the 2014 Board of Directors Award for the Eugene O'Neill Cabaret and Performance Conference. Lavin and Maye accepted their awards in person, and they also performed, Lavin accompanying herself on piano. Accepting for the O'Neill was director John McDaniel.

The Ruth Kurtzman Benefit Award went to the Park Concert Series (formerly The Concerts for City Greens), and was accepted by its founder, Raissa Katona Bennett.

The Hanson Award went to vocalist Amy Beth Williams, and two scholarships for Performing Arts education were awarded to youth from WingspanArts, young Jenna Barricklo and Sofia Bryant.
