The evening celebrated Angela Sun's steadfast commitment as a member of the Second Stage Board for a decade and her avid support of the arts and education, and Tom Kitt's indelible impact on American musical theatre and Second Stage's deeply meaningful and revered collaboration with him on Superhero and the Pulitzer Prize-winning Next to Normal.

The evening concluded with a finale performance of "Light" from Next to Normal. Over the past few weeks, Second Stage crowdsourced the many Tom Kitt fans from around the world to accompany Lauren Patten, along with Tom's three children Michael, Julie and Charlie Kitt, for the special performance.
