What a successful evening after day one of the Master Classes...last night was the Live Design Honors, at which legendary director and producer Hal Prince was honored, along with a panel discussion moderated by LD Allen Lee Hughes at the Rosenthal Pavilion of the Kimmel Center at New York University. Participating in the panel were Lisa Aronson, Beowulf Boritt, Judith Dolan, Eugene Lee, Richard Pilbrow, and David Rockwell.
AND, thanks to all the generosity of our guests, ESTA's Behind The Scenes Foundation raised a whopping $7,210 at the cocktail reception and silent auction before the panel. Whohoooo! Thanks to all those who bid on items and also to those who donated to the auction.
Manufacturers are getting ready now for their second day of presenting to the attendees. We're going to grab a few to guest blog in a bit.
