Sag Harbor's Bay Street Theatre will host its 23rd Annual Summer Gala on July 12 at the Long Wharf, honoring Emmy- and Tony-nominated actress Kate Burton, artist April Gornik, and Tony-winning lyricist Sheldon Harnick.
Burton earned Tony nominations for her performances in The Elephant Man, Hedda Gabler, and The Constant Wife and is widely recognized for her television roles on the Shonda Rimes' Grey's Anatomy and Scandal. Gornik is an artist best known for her landscapes. Her work is exhibited at the Danese/Corey Gallery in New York and is included in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, and many other national museums and private collections. Sheldon Harnick is best known for his work with composer Jerry Bock on the classic musical Fiddler on the Roof. His other stage credits include Fiorello, The Apple Tree, and Cyrano: The Musical.
The event will feature performances by Tony Award winner Patina Miller (Pippin) and Tony nominee Tovah Feldshuh (Golda's Balcony), who will serve as celebrity auctioneer. The evening will also include surprise guests and additional performances.
