BWW TV: CELEBRITY CHARADES - We Will Rock You!
LAByrinth Theater Company (John Ortiz, Artistic Director; Philip Seymour Hoffman, Co-Artistic Director; John Gould Rubin, Co-Artistic & Executive Director) entered the arena of power chords and monster riffs to present the sixth annual benefit featuring Celebrity Charades. This year's event was a battle of the bands, invoking the theme "We Will Rock You" at concert venue Terminal 5 (610 West 56th Street, at 11th Avenue).
Four teams of celebrities thrashed it out for 90 minutes in three fearless sets of speed-charades. Referee Eric Bogosian presided over the Charades while, between games, John Patrick Shanley hosted a live auction, featuring LAByrinth's unique money-can't-buy experiences - including a chance to play Charades with the celebrities. This year's confirmed star-studded roster of players included LAB's Artistic Directors John Ortiz and Philip Seymour Hoffman alongside LAB Members Ana Ortiz (Ugly Betty), Daphne Rubin-Vega (Rent), and celebrity guests Rachel Dratch (Saturday Night Live), Richard Kind (Spin City), Aasif Mandvi (The Daily Show), Edie Falco (The Sopranos) and Alan Cumming.
All proceeds benefited LAByrinth Theater Company's 17th season in 2008/09 season, hosted by The Public Theater. More information is available at LABtheater.org.
