Photo Coverage: Betty Buckley Sings for Primary Stages
Monty Hall could not have offered a more spectacular deal. Four women had the right price and were the top bidders at last year's Primary Stages Gala's Live Auction. As a result, Tony Award-Winning Broadway legend Betty Buckley came through door #1 at Jamie deRoy's apartment and sang at a private party organized by the winners.... Jamie, Catherine Adler, Paula Kaminsky Davis and Christina Rose.
This turned out to be the ultimate upclose and personal "sound check" for Betty's upcoming engagement at Joe's Pub at The Public. The show is titled Story Songs #2 - a new collection of music and it's on the heels of her nationally-acclaimed album. Betty will be at Joe's Pub from October 12-15th.
This sensational Live Auction Item event happens to come a week before the Primary Stages 2017 Gala which will take place on Monday, October 16th at Tribeca 360. Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty are the Artistic Honorees, Janet B. Rosen and Marvin Rosen are Producer Honorees, and the Corporate Honorees are Jose Mendez and Katie Graziano. There will be performances and tributes by Liz Callaway, Quentin Earl Darrington, Andy Karl, Tom Kirdahy, Terrence McNally, Lea Salonga, Margo Seibert, and surprise guests. Guests at the Gala will be hearing musical numbers from Anastasia, Once On This Island, Ragtime, and Rocky. I wonder who will be walking through the door of this year's lucky Live auction bidder.
