TACT (The Actors Company Theatre) has announced its 2018 Legacy Gala celebrating the company's 25 years off-Broadway and honoring founding artistic executive director Scott Alan Evans and longtime board chair Stephen Lindenmuth. The event will take place on Monday, June 4, at the University Club of New York, and will feature dinner, a live auction, and entertainment by Tony Award-nominated stars and sisters Ann Hampton Callaway and Liz Callaway.

Earlier this year, the company announced that it will cease operations this summer after wrapping up its 25th anniversary season. Thus, this gala will also serve to help raise the funds necessary to close its doors, archive its work, and preserve its legacy for future theater artists and theatergoers.

"Our hearts are full of pride over the 25 years of memories we have created — not just for us, but for the thousands of loyal theatergoers who have joined us along the way, turning out time and time again to take on every adventure we had to offer," said Evans in a statement. "We've had an amazing, fantastic run, and we are proud to have fulfilled what we set out to do: create an artistic home for a company of artists that brought attention back to hundreds of wonderful lost or underappreciated plays."
