TACT to Offer a Night of Song with Nancy Opel, Marc Kudisch, Andrew Samonsky, and More

TACT (Scott Alan Evans, Executive Artistic Director; Nora Chester &
Jeffrey C. Hawkins, Associate Artistic Directors) is proud to announce that
Adinah Alexander (Kinky Boots; Wicked; Parade); Marc Kudisch (9 to 5,
Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Thoroughly Modern Millie, Bells Are Ringing, Finding Neverand); Liz Larsen (Tony nominee for The Most Happy Fella; Beautiful, the Carole King Musical; Hairspray); Nancy Opel (Tony nominee for Urinetown; Honeymoon in Vegas; former member of TACT); Andrew Samonsky (South Pacific, Drood); and Karen Ziemba (Contact, Curtains, Prince of Broadway), along with Alison Blackwell, Wayne Pretlow, Ric Ryder, Patton Chandler, and Ella Mora will star in an evening of song to benefit the company, supporting and celebrating TACT's mission and programming for the past 25 seasons. Lee Roy Reams (42nd Street) will host.

TACT's Winter Benefit will take place Monday January 29th at the Laurie
Beechman Theater (at West Bank Cafe, 407 West 42nd Street). Doors open at 6pm for a 7pm performance. Tickets are $125 which includes the show and beverages (wine, beer, soft drinks; other beverages and food will be available).

"For 25 years, TACT has been championing important and vital plays of the
past that often have gone under-appreciated. So we're taking a moment to
celebrate all our accomplishments in a joyous evening of song. We have
some of our amazingly talented musical friends on hand to help us out -
many of them have worked with TACT over the years and we couldn't be
happier to welcome them back," said Evans.

TACT, now celebrating its 25th anniversary season, is a company of theatre artists that reveals, reclaims, and re-imagines great plays of literary merit, creating an intimate theatre experience for its audience by focusing beginning, TACT made its reputation with its Concert Performance productions: fully rehearsed presentations stripped down to their essence.

Staged in their intimate studio space, these performances (currently known as the Salon Series) feature simple staging, costuming, and lighting, refocusing the emphasis of the drama away from spectacle and production and back to the words and the actor - creating theatre in its purest form. This style grew out of the belief that the true magic of theatre lies in the special connection between the artist, the work of art, and the fully engaged audience. TACT is a resident company of NYC's famed Theatre Row and produces their Mainstage Off-Broadway productions there in the Beckett Theatre. In addition, TACT presents the Salon Series in their studio space at 900 Broadway. Both spaces allow audiences to enjoy an up-close and personal experience with both the play and the artists.

TACT's next production will be Three Wise Guys, the World Premiere of a
new comedy by Scott Alan Evans & Jeffrey Couchman, based on Damon Runyon's short stories "Dancing Dan's Christmas" and "The Three Wise Guys." Mr. Evans directs a cast that features Jeffrey C. Hawkins, Joel Jones, Karl Kenzler, Victoria Mack, Ron McClary, John Plumpis, and Dana Smith-Croll. Performances will begin Wednesday, February 28th, at the Beckett Theatre at Theatre Row (410 West 42nd Street between 9th and 10th Avenues) and continue for a strictly limited run through April 14th only. Opening Night is set for Sunday March 11th.
