New York Stage and Film will honor Oscar nominee Stanley Tucci and business luminary Anne Tatlock at its Annual Winter Gala on November 17. The event, which will take place at The Plaza Hotel, will feature Tony Award winners Lin-Manuel Miranda and Anika Noni Rose performing selections from Miranda's upcoming The Hamilton Mixtape.
The gala's committee members include Kevin Bacon, Lewis Black, Steve Buscemi, Rose Byrne, Hugh Dancy, Claire Danes, Jon Hamm, Julianna Margulies, Michael Mayer, Ken Olin, Oliver Platt, Aidan Quinn, Josh Radnor, Kyra Sedgwick, John Patrick Shanley, Jennifer Westfeldt, and Patricia Wettig. The Gala's honorary cochairs are Emily Blunt, Patricia Clarkson, Maria Cuomo Cole, Kenneth Cole, Henry P. Johnson, John Krasinski, Nanette Lepore, and Geraldine Laybourne.
Stanley Tucci is a stage and screen actor who has also worked behind the camera as a writer, director, and producer. Some of his best-known roles include that of Julia Child's husband in 2008's Julie & Julia and Caesar Flickerman in The Hunger Games. Anne Tatlock is the former chairman/CEO of Fiduciary Trust and vice chair of Franklin Resources, and she continues to serve as a director of both firms.
The Hamilton Mixtape was given a concert reading this past summer during the annual Powerhouse Season, which highlights the long collaboration between Vassar College and New York Stage and Film, and their efforts to develop works for the American theater.
