Photo Coverage: Inside Theater for the New City's LOVE 'N COURAGE Benefit

Just last night, Theater for the New City paid tribute to the playwright and theater critic Mario Fratti (whose adaptation of the Federico Fellini film 8 ½ became the Broadway musical NINE) at the 11th annual LOVE 'N COURAGE benefit at the National Arts Club (15 Gramercy Park South) in New York City. An annual evening to benefit TNC's Emerging Playwrights Program, this year's LOVE 'N COURAGE event featured appearances by Liliane Montevecchi, Oscar winner F. Murray Abraham, two-time Tony winner Tammy Grimes accompanied by Alex Rybeck, singer Anna Bergman accompanied by William Hicks, Austin Pendleton, Katharine Cullison, cabaret star KT Sullivan, Inma Heredia, Human Kinetics Movement Arts, Rachel Klein Dance Company, Jocab Merrick Storms, the Yip Harburg Foundation Rainbow Troupe, and Michael-David Gordon and TNC's Street Theater Company.

BroadwayWorld was there for the special night and you can check out photos from the performances below!

Mario Fratti is the author of nearly 70 plays, which collectively have received 600 productions in numerous languages in two dozen countries. His plays include BLINDNESS: A TRAGEDY IN IRAQ, SUICIDE, THE CAGE, ACADEMY, MAFIA, THE RACES and THE BRIDGE. The musical NINE won five Tony Awards, eight Drama Desk Awards and two Outer Critics Circle Awards during its original run on Broadway, subsequently earning three Outer Critics Awards and two Tony Awards when it was revived in 2003. A longtime, revered member of the press corps covering theater in New York City, Mr. Fratti serves as drama critic for several European newspapers.
