Stage veterans Idina Menzel (If/Then), Sarah Jessica Parker (The Commons of Pensacola), Claire Danes (Homeland), and Susan Sarandon (Exit the King) are among the performers who will be honored at Variety's annual Power of Women luncheon, to be held April 25 at Cipriani Midtown.
The women are being honored for their humanitarian efforts. Menzel is the cocreator of the arts-based summer camp A Broader Way, while Parker and Danes work with New York City Ballet and Afghan Hands, respectively. Sarandon helps with Hope North in Uganda.
Additional honorees include supermodel Iman, who works with the Dr. Hawa Abdi Foundation, and A + E Networks president and CEO Nancy Dubuc, who works with Project Rubicon/The Mission Continues.
The event will host 300 entertainment and media insiders and include VIP pre-and post-ceremony cocktail receptions. It will also feature an interactive philanthropy bazaar, which will allow guests to engage with the featured charities.
