Black Tie International:
The Acting Company Annual Benefit Gala
 


Richard Thomas
 

 

THE ACTING COMPANY HONORS THEATRICAL DIRECTOR

MARK LAMOS AND ARTS PATRON J. BARCLAY COLLINS

MONDAY, OCTOBER 17th BENEFIT GALA AT NEW YORK CITY’S METROPOLITAN CLUB 

 

ATTENDEES INCLUDE DANA IVEY, FORMER NJ GOV. THOMAS KEAN, EDGAR LANSBURY, RICHARD THOMAS AND HOST STEPHEN DeROSA

 

The Acting Company will honor legendary theatrical director Mark Lamos and distinguished patron of the arts J. Barclay Collins at its annual gala Monday, October 17, at New York’s Metropolitan Club, One East 60th St. The event, starting at 6:30 p.m., features cocktails, silent auction, dinner, entertainment and award ceremony.

An industry-filled audience of producers, directors, entertainers and other notables is expected to attend, including Dana Ivey, former NJ Gov. Thomas Kean, Edgar Lansbury, and Richard Thomas. The Acting Company Alumnus, Stephen DeRosa, will host the event.

The Acting Company is America’s most honored touring repertory theatre, having reached four million people in the U.S. and abroad with 140 classic and new works. Proceeds from the gala support the Company’s repertory of theatrical productions and arts education for underserved audiences.

Mr. Lamos will be presented with The Acting Company’s John Houseman Award by Richard Thomas. The award honors Mr. Lamos’ profound commitment to the development of actors and arts education in America.  He has helped to shape the careers of some of the finest classical actors in recent generations, with numerous alumni of The Acting Company among them.

Mr. Collins will receive The Acting Company’s Joan M. Warburg Humanitarian Award for his deep and longstanding dedication to giving back to the community, from supporting the arts and education, to helping raise funds for innovations in health care and new protections for the environment. The Award will be presented by former NJ Governor Thomas Kean.

“This year’s award recipients, Barclay Collins and Mark Lamos, truly embody the spirit, commitment and dedication of John Houseman and Joan Warburg’s contributions to The Acting Company and the theatrical world,” Executive Director, Elisa Spencer-Kaplan said.

Now artistic director of the Westport Country Playhouse, Mr. Lamos has directed innumerable plays, musicals and opera in regional theatre and on Broadway. The New York Times has called him “a poet of the theatre” for his outstanding career achievements. His work has received a chapter in Samuel L. Leiter’s “The Great Stage Directors: 100 Distinguished Careers of the Theater.”

As artistic director of Connecticut’s Hartford Stage, it won a Tony® Award for Outstanding Regional Theatre.

Mr. Collins, a long-time executive in the energy business, has served on the board of The Acting Company for nine years. He is former executive vice president and general counsel of Hess Corporation, the New York-based global energy company.

Throughout his business and professional life, Mr. Collins has been a committed volunteer leader in health care, education and the arts, as well as with organizations in the protection of the environment and historic preservation.

Event chairs are Tim Saunders, Christopher Shyer, Angela Pierce and Dana Ivey.  Vince Giordano and The Nighthawks will provide music.

Founded in 1972 by Oscar® winner John Houseman and producer Margot Harley, The Acting Company brings live classical theatre to those who might otherwise never get a chance to enjoy and learn from it. Its education programs reach students who have limited access to arts, education and live theatre.

Since its inception, The Acting Company has developed the talents and skills of more than 400 actors, including the young Kevin Kline, Patti LuPone, Rainn Wilson, Harriet Harris, Frances Conroy, Jesse L. Martin, Jeffrey Wright, David Ogden Stiers, David Schramm, Keith David, Stephen DeRosa and Hamish Linklater, all of whom began their careers with it.
