The second annual Behind the Scenes Tony Awards Party is set for Sunday, June 10th in New York City. Continuing a long-standing tradition, the shops that work on Broadway gather together for an evening of food and drink to cheer on their Tony-nominated shows. Last year over 125 professionals, a dazzling array of industry talent, had a fabulous evening while making sure their colleagues will be cared for in times of need.
Fred Gallo of PRG Scenic Technologies, one of the organizers of the original Tony parties and the new Behind the Scenes benefit, says “ The combination of attending the long-standing Tony night shop party with the opportunity to contribute to the Behind the Scenes program that helps industry professionals is a win / win outcome for everyone. Plus, there is an open bar—so as I said last year, there is no excuse not to come.”
The 2007 Behind the Scenes Tony Awards party will be held on June 10th from 7pm to 11pm at Cibo restaurant, 767 Second Avenue between 41st and 42nd. The evening includes an open bar, served hors d’ouevres, a fabulous dinner buffet and a decadent dessert buffet. Tables of various sizes are available as well as individual tickets. Tickets are $200 each, and $105 of each ticket is tax deductible. The reservation form is available online, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or by calling 212-244-1421.
