Museum At Eldridge Street to Honor Sheldon Harnick And Stephen Schwartz; Julia Murney, Liz Callaway, and More to Perform

The Museum at Eldridge Street, based in Manhattan, is hosting a fundraising Gala tomorrow night, Thursday, November 1st.

The museum will be honoring Broadway legends Sheldon Harnick (Lyricist She Loves Me, Fiddler on the Roof, The Rothschilds, among others) and Stephen Schwartz (Lyricist and Composer Wicked, Pippin, Rags, among others ) that evening. They are also honoring Michael Weinstein, Chairman of ARK Restaurant Corporation for his 25 years of exemplary leadership of the Museum at Eldridge Street and his leadership in guiding the 20-year, $20 million restoration of our landmark building, the National Historic Landmark 1887 Eldridge Street Synagogue.

The event takes place at Bryant Park Grill, 25 West 40 Street, New York, NY. Co-hosts include Broadway actress Mimi Lieber and the Museum at Eldridge Street's Executive Director Bonnie Dimun.

Cocktails begin at 6 pm, followed at 7 pm with dinner, entertainment and awards ceremony.

The awards recognize Sheldon Harnick and Stephen Schwartz for their significant contributions to the American stage. The award presenters include:

Maria and Michael Osheowitz, and Alyssa and Cliff Greenberg, business leaders, and Emma and Sam Weinstein, the honorees' adult children, presenting the award to Michael Weinstein.

We will be using a very large, beautiful photograph of the restored Eldridge Street Synagogue for our step and repeat in the cocktail portion of the evening.

Proceeds will support the Museum at Eldridge Street's myriad cultural and educational programs that serve more than 40,000 visitors a year, as well as underwrite the continued restoration of our landmark facility.For more information or tickets, please contact Chelsea Dowell, Museum at Eldridge Street, at cdowell@eldridgestreet.org.
