The evening's program was directed by Kevin Cahoon ("Glow," The Nerd), scripted by Josh Koenigsberg ("Orange is the New Black") and featured musical direction by William Shuler (Pippin National Tour).

The NYTW Annual Gala raises nearly 10% of the Off-Broadway company's annual budget. Funds raised at this one-night-only event help NYTW to mount five world class productions each season and to share them with more than 50,000 audience members. Proceeds also support NYTW's Artist Workshop activities through which nearly 2,000 artists develop more than 80 projects each year and their Education Initiatives including Learning Workshop, Mind the Gap, and Public Programs that serve over 1,600 students of all ages.
