Theater Resources Unlimited, in association with sponsors Theatrical Rights Worldwide, Elysabeth Kleinhans, C2 - Caption Coalition and the Players Theatre, announces the seventh annual TRU LOVE BENEFIT.  The event will honor producing maverick Ken Davenport and Arlene Romoff, advocate for open captioning for live theater, at a luncheon benefit on Sunday, November 9, 2008 at Caroline?s on Broadway. The event, themed ?Believe ... in the possibilities of theater,? begins with a cocktail hour reception at noon followed by a luncheon at 1pm, with entertainment and an awards ceremony to start at 1:45 and a Silent Auction throughout the afternoon.

Ken Davenport is the recipient of the 2008 TRU Spirit of Theater Award, which is given to someone in the theater community who is generous, supportive and inspiring. TRU honors Mr. Davenport for his dedication to and belief in the possibilities of off-Broadway and theater in general, as well as his use of new producing models and innovative technology to breathe new life into the business of theater. Previous honorees include the late Fredric Vogel, Woodie King Jr., Philip Rose and Cheryl Wiesenfeld.

 

TRU recognizes Arlene Romoff, president of the Hearing Loss Association of New Jersey, and author of "Hear Again - Back to Life with a Cochlear Implant," with a Humanitarian Award for her work to bring open captioned performances to live theater, making theater accessible for people with hearing loss.

Rooms by Paul Scott Goodman, receiving its World Premiere as a co-production between MetroStage and Geva Theatre Center; a song from the Broadway musical 13; and surprise celebrity guests performing monologues from My First Time.

 

The Honorary Benefit Committee includes composer Gary Adler (Altar Boyz), director Stafford Arima (Altar Boyz); Brenda Battat, Executive Director of the Hearing Loss Association of America; producer/general manager Peter Breger; writer Kevin Del Aguila (Altar Boyz); producer Angelo DelRossi; choreographer Christopher Gattelli (Altar Boyz, South Pacific, 13); producer Robyn Goodman (Altar Boyz, Avenue Q, In the Heights); Dr. Laurie Hanin, Executive Director of the League for the Hard of Hearing; Beverley Mac Keen of New World Stages; John McEwen, Executive Director of NJ Theatre Alliance; Karen Ratner, President of the Hearing Loss Association of America/NY State Association; Catherine Russell of the Snapple Theatre Centre; and producer Tom Smedes (Ace the Musical, Naked Boys Singing).


Theater Resources Unlimited is a service organization that provides guidance, information and support to producers and theater companies, including self-producing artists.  Programs include Producer Mentorship, a weekend Boot Camp for aspiring producers, a new play and musicals reading series, an annual audition event and scholarships to the Commercial Theater Institute.

 

The 2008 TRU Love Benefit will take place on Sunday, November 9, 2008 at noon at Caroline?s on Broadway, 1626 Broadway, NYC.  Tickets for the luncheon, performance and awards ceremony are $150 for ?Circle of Angels?
