Andrew is not only an inspiration to me as an artist but leads the pack of men who have set great examples of integrity within our community."

The entertainment portion of the evening will be directed by Abingdon Theatre Company Artistic Director Chad Austin with choreography by Broadway's Deidre Goodwin (A Chorus Line) and feature an array of Broadway talent including Christy Altomare (Anastasia), two-time Tony Award nominee Kate Baldwin (Hello, Dolly!, Finian's Rainbow), Audrey Caldwell (Falsettos), Morgan James (Motown: The Musical), Blaine Krauss (The Cher Show), Olivier Award-winner Lesli Margherita (Zorro), Bonnie Milligan (Head Over Heels), Julia Murney (The Wild Party) John Riddle (Frozen) and Conor Ryan (Desperate Measures).

Abingdon Theatre Company is dedicated to developing and producing brave, new American work by emerging and established artists. The company provides a safe home where playwrights, directors and actors can collaborate within a supportive and nurturing environment. We search for stories about the human experience that reflect our social, political, historical and cultural diversity. We are acutely aware of the theatre's power to unite disparate population groups through stories about common human interests, and we strive to shed light on a variety of perspectives.
