James Naughton and Randy Graff will appear with husband-and-wife musical theater stars Jason Danieley and Marin Mazzie at this year's winter benefit for the Manhattan Theatre Club (MTC) on Monday, January 27.

The benefit, entitled "An Intimate Night," was conceived and directed by MTC director of artistic production Murphy Davis to help fund many aspects of MTC, including the company's educational outreach programs, its musical and play development programs, its "Writers in Performance" series, and its annual eight-show seasons.

Naughton won Tony Awards for his performances in Chicago and City of Angels. Graff won a Tony for her role in City of Angels and was nominated for her work in A Class Act. Mazzie was Tony-nominated for Kiss Me, Kate, Ragtime, and Passion, while Danieley received acclaim for his work on Broadway in Candide and The Full Monty and Off-Broadway in Floyd Collins.

"An Intimate Night" will take place at the Plaza Hotel (Fifth Avenue at Central Park South in Manhattan). Tickets for the event -- which include a cocktail reception, dinner, and the show -- range from $12,500 for a 10-person table to $600 for individuals.
