The third annual Behind the Scenes Tony Awards Party is set for Sunday, June 15th in New York City. The event brings together the shops that work on Broadway and the companies that supply them for a terrific evening of schmoozing, food, drink, and cheering for their Tony-nominated shows.

Fred Gallo of PRG Scenic Technologies, one of the organizers of the evening, says “Those of us that work on Broadway rarely get the time to catch up with friends, colleagues, and co-workers outside the pressures of getting the show up. The Tony Party offers a great opportunity to see each other, celebrate what we’re doing, spend some downtime together, and at the same time provide important help to our colleagues in need. What could be better?”

The 2008 Behind the Scenes Tony Awards party will be held on June 15th 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 info@estafoundation.org, or by calling 212-244-1421.
