ABOUT THE GALA:
Join us for our annual Spring Gala, a one-night only celebration of SpeakEasy's theatrical achievements with artists, supporters, and friends. This year's event will feature a lively cocktail reception, a three-course seated dinner, a robust silent auction filled with one-of-a-kind prizes and experiences, and top-tier SpeakEasy entertainment, featuring the music of Jeanine Tesori.
HONORING EDWARD & NANCY ROBERTS:
We are thrilled to announce that we will be awarding the 2019 Mayor Thomas M. Menino Award for Inspired Support of the Arts to Ed & Nancy Roberts. The Roberts have been supporters of the arts in Boston for decades and have a tremendous passion for theatre, and in particular, for SpeakEasy. Nancy has served as a member of our Board of Directors for eight years and Ed as an invaluable advisor to the organization and, as such, their leadership has been instrumental to the growth of our company. They also are the namesake of the Roberts Studio Theatre, which is our artistic home at the Calderwood Pavilion! They have both been an important part of our community for many years, and we are thrilled to have the opportunity to celebrate their generosity and commitment to our organization.
HONORING JEANINE TESORI:
We will also be awarding the 2019 Artistic Excellence Award to legendary Broadway composer Jeanine Tesori for her momentous musical compositions that made history with their artistic excellence and powerful themes. Tesori has changed the face of musical theatre by creating powerful female protagonists and giving voices to communities often ignored, through her musicals Fun Home, Violet, Caroline or Change, Shrek, Thoroughly Modern Millie, and more. By presenting artistically challenging and timely work like Tesori's, SpeakEasy has grown as a company and has raised the bar for professional theatre in Boston.
We look forward to featuring Ms. Tesori's music at this year's event, performed by SpeakEasy artists from our productions of Fun Home, Violet, and others.
