Tovah Feldshuh and Jackie Hoffman to Be Honored at Actors' Temple Centennial Gala
The celebration will also feature performances by comedian Bob Greenberg and others.
The Actors' Temple will celebrate its centennial with a March 13 gala event to be held at The Friars Club, honoring Broadway actresses Tovah Feldshuh (Pippin) and Jackie Hoffman (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory).
In addition to Feldshuh and Hoffman, who will both perform, featured entertainers will be Andrew Beall (composer of Song of Solomon), the singers Anna Bergman and Adrienne Haan, comedian Bob Greenberg, and concert violinist Marina Kifferstein.
The event, produced by Carol Ostrow, supports the Actors' Temple mission to provide a dynamic spiritual home for Jews and a creative home for Jewish and non-Jewish artists. A 100th Year Capital Campaign to preserve the Temple's historic building at 339 West 47th Street is also being launched. Constructed in 1923, the Actors' Temple building is a federally designated national landmark.
A meeting place and performance venue serving generations of show business professionals, the Actors' Temple's Congregation Ezrath Israel is led by Rabbi Jill Hausman.
