Co-directed by Roger T. Danforth and Tony Award winner Cady Huffman, the musical revue is always the highlight of The Drama League's annual benefit gala. The evening began at 7 p.m. with a cocktail reception and silent auction/raffle in the Cotillion Room, followed by an elegant seated dinner at 8 p.m. in the Grand Ballroom, followed by the performance, featuring musical direction by Eugene Gwozdz and special written material by Stephen Cole.
All proceeds from "A MUSICAL CELEBRATION OF BROADWAY" support The Drama League, which was founded in 1916 as an association of theatre professionals and patrons dedicated to encouraging the finest in professional theatre and has since then developed into the theatre's premiere service organization.
