We're are incredibly grateful to Stephen, Julia, and our friends at NJPAC for their generosity in making this event possible. It is going to be an unforgettable evening."

"All joking aside, Julia Louis-Dreyfus is one of the premier actresses of our era. I can't wait to see what happens when she joins forces with her fellow Second City alum Stephen Colbert! Montclair Film's annual fundraisers with Stephen and his friends have become among the most eagerly anticipated events of the Arts Center's season, and this year's may be the most entertaining yet."
