Roundabout Theatre Company celebrated its 2021 gala in Central Park June 7. Headlined by Tony winner Jane Krakowski and the New York Pops, the event featured an in-person audience as well as a one-night-only virtual stream of the performances.
In addition to spotlighting upcoming works at Roundabout and their development programming, the gala celebrated the Save Our Stages Act and honored the bill's co-sponsor Senator Chuck Schumer with The Jason Robards Award for Excellence in Theatre. The event featured in-person appearances from Tina Fey, Tituss Burgess, Adrienne Warren, Vanessa Williams, and Alec Baldwin as well as virtual appearances from Rachel Brosnahan, Whoopi Goldberg, Blair Underwood, Emma Stone, and more.
All proceeds from the gala went to Roundabout, benefiting its programming during the theatre shutdown, safety protocols for the theatre’s return to performances, and support for the company’s artists and technicians.
