'It was a wonderful evening and a great way to celebrate our last summer gala on the Long Wharf,' says Scott Schwartz, Bay Street Theater's Artistic Director. 'We will have a new location next year, but we had an amazing music-filled sunset party that supports Bay Street Theater.' 'The annual gala was a wonderful event and Bay Street's only fundraiser of the year,' says Executive Director Tracy Mitchell. 'Besides being a fun night in the theater and on the Wharf, the gala is the cornerstone of our fundraising efforts allowing us to support more than thirty other community organizations on the East End.' The evening's auction items included a week-long stay in St. Barth's for 4 at a luxury 2- bedroom WIMCO villa, complete with unparalleled concierge service, and roundtrip flights to the island from San Juan via private carrier Tradewind Aviation. Other items included an 8-day cruise on Viking Cruises for 2, a walk on role in EVITA with dinner for 8 guests at The American Hotel, and many, many more. This year, the Bay Street Theater honored Sag Harbor businesses as a thank you for supporting the Gala for the past 27 years, Bay Street Theater honored Bay Street Board Members Luigi Caiola and Erik Batt, who along with their spouses and families have been devoted supporters.

Mary Callanan returns from Broadway and national tours to play her sidekick Vera, and ten-year-old triple threat Cameron Levesque plays her precocious nephew Patrick.

BWW Reviews: The Engeman 'Produces' a Sensational PRODUCERS
by Brian Rivera - Jun 8, 2015

I want to express the deepest gratitude to the director, Igor Goldin, for not directing his actors into a corner with this show. Each and every person onstage had a story to tell, and not just some façade to put on: a worry I typically have when viewing a comedic musical. Even each member of the ensemble had fantastic individuality and characterization that it makes one wonder whether an ensemble needs to necessarily “blend together” – which, in fact, is quite difficult not to do when the show decks out its actors in outrageous costumes that make Betsy Johnson and Alexander McQueen look (I won't be forgetting you, anytime soon, Sausage Dress…). Though, it's the joint effort between the lead players and supporting players that create magic on that stage, and this cast did just that. (more...)
