Abingdon Theatre Company just celebrated its 2015-2016 Season with ABINGDON: REFLECTIONS OF STARLIGHT, last night, October 26 at Espace (635 West 42nd Street in Manhattan). Richard Jay-Alexander, best known for directing Barbra Streisand and other artists in concert, directed the event, honoring Tony Award-winning costume designer Jane Greenwood, who designed Abingdon's acclaimed production of Hellman v. McCarthy; Abingdon Theatre Company's Vice Chair and former Managing Director, Heather Henderson; and one of New York's most prominent lawyers in entertainment, Mark Sendroff.

Proceeds benefit Abingdon Theatre Company's mission to develop and produce new plays. Abingdon Theatre Company's 23rd Annual Benefit Gala features tributes to the honorees, plus entertainment, silent and live auctions, and exciting surprises throughout the night

Under Richard Jay-Alexander's direction, the evening featured special appearances by Lucie Arnaz, Walter Bobbie, Hunter Ryan Herdlicka, Frank Langella, Linda Lavin, Roberta Maxwell, Marilyn Maye, Billy Stritch, and Holland Taylor.

Since 1993, Abingdon Theatre Company has developed and produced new plays by established and emerging playwrights. Under the guidance of Artistic Director Jan Buttram, the company provides a safe home where playwrights collaborate with other theatre artists and receive audience feedback through readings and workout labs, culminating in full productions.
