Bay Street's Third Annual Spring Benefit

Bay Street Theatre was pleased to present Curtain Up!, Bay Street’s Third Annual Spring Benefit honoring Bonnie Comley and Stewart F. Lane, and Pia and Jimmy Zankel at Joe’s Pub in New York City on May 12. Bay Street’s third honors event was hosted by the new Artistic Director, Scott Schwartz.  The program included a tribute to the honorees as well as a taste from each of this summer's productions with some of the artists involved including Richard Kind and Robert Cuccioli. American Idol and Tony nominated Constantine Maroulis showed support for Bay Street and honored his Jekyll & Hyde producers, Stewart and Bonnie, by presenting them with the 2014 Visionaries Award.

"Our honorees truly represent the best of what it means to be supporters of the arts," says Tracy Mitchell, Executive Director of Bay Street Theatre. "Pia Zankel, a committed member of Bay Street’s Board of Trustees, and her husband Jimmy Zankel bring a true love of the arts, both theater and music, and a philanthropic spirit to all they do. Like them, Bonnie Comley and Stewart F. Lane, Tony and Olivier award-winning producers, writers and performers, also bring a similar support and we could not do it without these four incredible people. Their generous support of fellow artists and theatres like ours, impacts audiences everywhere, from regional theaters to Broadway. All four of these generous honorees give back to the community in so very many ways."

As part of Scott Schwartz’s commitment to inaugurating a new vision for Bay Street, the Spring Honors Benefit featured a preview of the exciting 2014 summer Mainstage season of ‘Art & Revolution’, featuring presentations and performances by the stars and creators of the new productions, which include CONVICTION, a World Premiere modern drama written by Carey Crim, to be directed by Scott Schwartz; TRAVESTIES, a Tony award winning comedy classic by Tom Stoppard, directed by Gregory Boyd and starring Richard Kind; and MY LIFE IS A MUSICAL, another world premiere with book, music and lyrics by Adam Overett, to be directed and choreographed by Marlo Hunter.

The evening focused on the exciting new artistic season that Schwartz has planned for Bay Street’s summer season. "At its core," says Schwartz, "I believe theater is a social art form, and that a theater company is most vital when it is a focal point for its community. I am excited to bring the best and brightest theater artists working today to Bay Street, and I am delighted to showcase our new season at this benefit paying tribute to our very artistic honorees for all that they do for the theater."

Bay Street Theatre is a year-round, not-for-profit professional theater and community cultural center which endeavors to innovate, educate, and entertain a diverse community through the practice of the performing arts. We serve as a social and cultural gathering place, an educational resource, and a home for a community of artists. For more information, visit
