The Red Carpet was hosted by SundayMorningMimosa.com's Anita M. Buffem & Gina Marie Rittale with a live art installation curated by Samantha Levin.

The LatchKey Kids (TLK) are committed to changing the New York theatre scene by creating inclusive events and forums for all performing genres. Whether artists be contingents of the cabaret, dance, downtown/performance art, literary, production or the Broadway world, we are dedicated to building a better theatrical community through support, interface, networking and diversity. By bridging such communal gaps to unify actors, musicians, writers, and producers, it is The LatchKey Kids (TLK) goal to create inventive ways of developing and producing new work through grassroots outreach and networking
