More Tickets Available for 6/19 Jackson & Wallach Tribute

Due to increased demand, extra seating has been added for the June 19th tribute to Anne Jackson and Eli Wallach, "A Life in the Theatre--Onstage and Off."

"We now realize that we've attracted a truly unique cross-section of great performers to honor Eli Wallach and Anne Jackson, and that we need to accommodate the gratifying response this line-up has gotten," stated Tony Vellela.

Hosted by James Naughton and benefiting the Character Studies Education Projects, the event will use songs, scenes and stories to chronicle the lives and careers of this distinguished couple during the last sixty-plus years. Honoring them will be Andrea Martin, Austin Pendleton, Cynthia Nixon, Marian Seldes, Boyd Gaines, Kate Burton, Eric Stoltz, and Tovah Feldshuh, with a special appearance by Kitty Carlisle Hart. The evening will also feature a starry silent auction.

Along with the release of a limited number of more general admission tickets, the number of special VIP orchestra seats has been expanded by twenty percent. VIP ticket-holders, along with seating in the best location in the theatre, will receive admission to a private reception following the show, in addition to an autographed copy of Mr. Wallach's new autobiography, "The Good, the Bad and Me."

Eli Wallach and Anne Jackson have been recipients of numerous Tony, Emmy, Golden Globe, Theatre World, Drama Desk and BAFTA awards and nominations in their 60-plus year careers. Together, Wallach and Jackson have appeared together on Broadway in The Flowering Peach, Lost in Yonkers, Cafe Crown, Twice Around the Park, The Waltz of the Toreadors, Luv, Rhinoceros and others.
