All most current Covide-19 safety protocols will prevail.

Proceeds from the 2021 Gala benefit Roundabout Theatre Company’s myriad programs happening during the shutdown, safety protocols when theater opens again, and support for hundreds of artists and technicians who are eagerly awaiting the return to work.

The in-person Gala will begin with staggered safety arrivals at 5:30PM and include a seated dinner, a live auction and the special concert performance. The virtual live stream will begin at 8:00 PM.
