The evening will also include a special video message from Alex Borovenskiy and the company of ProEnglish Theatre (www.proenglishtheatre.com) - an artistic shelter, performance venue and theater school based in Ukraine. Says Borovenskiy "This is the time for artists to document what is happening so it never happens again. Yes, even though we are sheltering at the theatre. And yes, we are at war. But our message can still be hopeful and funny."
