Honest Accomplice Theatre Hosts Celebrity Game Night
Laura Benanti, Andrew Rannells, and more Broadway stars will compete for a good cause tonight.
Hosted by Susan Blackwell, participants will include Tony winner Laura Benanti (She Loves Me), Tony nominee John Ellison Conlee (The Full Monty), Tony winner Nikki M. James (The Book of Mormon), Andrew Keenan-Bolger (Tuck Everlasting), three-time Tony nominee Celia Keenan-Bolger (The Cherry Orchard), Shakina Nayfack (Difficult People), Tony nominee Andrew Rannells (Falsettos), Jacob Tobia, and Tommar Wilson (Frozen).
In addition to game night, the event will celebrate the launch of the Trans Literacy Project — a video series created by trans artists and advocates with the goal of addressing social issues affecting trans people.
Proceeds from the benefit will go toward HAT's upcoming show, ReconFIGUREd, premiering in January 2017, HAT's currently touring production of The Birds and the Bees: Unabridged, and the continued creation, marketing, and distribution of the Trans Literacy Project.
Founded in 2014 by Maggie Keenan-Bolger and Rachel Sullivan, HAT's mission is to drive individual acceptance among and incite community dialogue about women and trans people by exploring topics that are often silenced, seen as shameful, or portrayed as one-dimensional. The company develops original works that play in New York and tour to college campuses and high schools.
