The Vineyard Theatre has announced a starry group of performers joining the lineup for its annual gala, set to take place on Monday, March 30, at the Edison Ballroom. Legendary film director John Waters (Hairspray, Cry-Baby) will host the event, honoring Tony Award-winning producer Margo Lion.

Directed by Tony Award winner Michael Mayer (Hedwig and the Angry Inch), the gala performance will feature Tony winner Betty Buckley (Cats), Tony nominee Kathleen Chalfant (Angels in America), Oscar winner Holly Hunter (The Piano), Tony-winning playwright Tony Kushner (Angels in America), Tony nominee Matthew Morrison (Glee, Finding Neverland), Tony winner Tonya Pinkins (Rasheeda Speaking), Kate Mulgrew (Orange Is the New Black), and Aaron Tveit (Next to Normal).

Chalfant, who recently performed in the Vineyard Theatre's production of Somewhere Fun, cochairs the gala with producer Amanda Lipitz (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Legally Blonde The Musical).

"We have long admired what Margo has accomplished in the theater," said the Vineyard's artistic director, Sarah Stern. "From Jelly's Last Jam to Angels in America to Hairspray. She has been responsible for bringing some of the most groundbreaking plays and musicals of the past three decades to the stage, and we are delighted to be celebrating her in what promises to be a very fun evening, featuring renowned artists and collaborators from the extraordinary works she has produced."
