Roundabout Theatre Company to Honor Jessica Lange at 2018 Gala

Roundabout Theatre Company (Todd Haimes, Artistic Director/CEO) announces its annual 2018 Gala will honor Tony, Academy, Golden Globe and Emmy Award winner Jessica Lange with The Jason Robards Award for Excellence in Theatre on Monday, February 26, 2018 in the new Ziegfeld Ballroom (141 W 54th St, NYC).

Lauded as one of the greatest actresses of her generation, Jessica Lange recently won the Tony, Outer Critics Circle and Drama Desk awards for her star turn as "Mary Tyrone" in Roundabout Theatre Company's acclaimed revival of Long Day's Journey into Night.

Lange is also a two?time Academy Award winner, five-time Golden Globe winner, and three-time Emmy and SAG winner with more than 30 credits to her name. Following the success of Long Day's Journey, Lange starred in FX's anthology series "Feud" and received her eighth Emmy Award nomination.

Tony and Emmy Award winner Kristin Chenoweth is a long-time friend of Roundabout Theatre having made her New York stage debut in 1997 with Scapin and more recently starred as "Lily Garland" in their celebrated revival of On the Twentieth Century. During this production, she received her third Tony Award nomination and co-hosted the Tony Awards with Alan Cumming. Chenoweth is perhaps best known on Broadway for originating the role of "Glinda" in Wicked and winning a Tony Award as "Sally Brown" in You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown.

The Jason Robards Award for Excellence in Theatre is named after the late Jason Robards for his longstanding relationship with Roundabout and memorable body of stage work. It is given to those who have made an indelible impact on both Roundabout and the theatre world.

Roundabout Theatre Company's 2018 Gala will begin at 7:00PM with the Robards Award presentation along with dinner and a live auction, followed by a special concert performance by Tony Award winner Kristin Chenoweth (Roundabout's On the Twentieth Century and The Apple Tree).

The creative team will be announced shortly.

The 2018 Gala will be chaired by Karen McKeel Calby, Marcia Dunn MD and Jonathan Sobel, Stephanie and Ron Kramer, and Johannes (Johs) Worsoe, Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group. The Gala Auction is chaired by Sylvia Golden along with committee members Wendy Barker, Carmen Grossman and Randi Leeds.

Education at Roundabout serves over 20,000 students and their teachers in New York's public schools throughout all five boroughs. Since 1996, Education at Roundabout has offered nationally recognized programs that use the stimulating power of the arts to inspire and engage. The deep impact and breadth of our work is a result of programs and curricula curated specifically to reach students, teachers, early career professionals, and our audiences. Beginning in 2016 and building on our long partnership with the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE), Roundabout established the Theatre Workforce Development Program providing a three-year program for 18-24 year-olds from underrepresented communities with trade skills training and job placement, bringing a new generation into the field. roundabouttheatre.org/education
