Roundabout Theatre Company will present its 2015 Spring Gala There Is Nothing Like a Dame on March 2 in the Grand Ballroom of the Waldorf Astoria. The evening will be a celebration of Oscar and Emmy winner Helen Mirren, who will be presented with the Jason Robards Award for Excellence in Theatre.

The annual gala will include dinner and a live auction. The tribute will feature appearances by Jennifer Garner and Alessandro Nivola as well as performances by Laura Benanti, Kristin Chenoweth, Alan Cumming, Santino Fontana, Victor Garber, Donna Murphy, Kelli O'Hara, Alessandro Nivola, Laura Osnes, and Betsy Wolfe. Six-time Tony nominee Scott Ellis will direct.

Dame Helen Mirren, who is set to return to Broadway this spring in The Audience, made her Broadway debut in 1995 at Roundabout Theatre Company in a Tony-nominated performance in A Month in the Country, directed by Ellis.

The Jason Robards Award for Excellence in Theatre is named after the late Jason Robards for his longstanding relationship with Roundabout and memorable body of stage work. It is given to those who have made an indelible impact on both Roundabout and the theater world.

All proceeds from this event will benefit Roundabout Theatre Company's Musical Theatre Fund and Education programs, which serve over 15,000 students and teachers in schools throughout all five boroughs.
