The event, "Sophisticated Lady: A Gala Evening Honoring Phylicia Rashad," will be honoring Rashad, the Tony Award-winning director who directed Westport Country Playhouse's "A Raisin in the Sun" last fall. Gala proceeds will benefit the theater.
"I am so pleased to have this opportunity to celebrate Howard Aibel at our gala," Michael Ross, playhouse managing director, said in a statement. "Not only has he been a lifelong supporter of the performing arts, but he has been instrumental to the success and vibrancy of Westport Country Playhouse through so much of its history."
The gala will begin with a cocktail party at 5:45, followed by a 7 p.m. performance. Dinner with the evening's artists and special guests will be at 8:30 p.m. There will also be a silent auction. Gala tickets are $250 to $2,500. Corporate sponsorship packages are available.
