“For 30 years Abingdon Theatre Company has succeeded in its mission as a champion for artists creating new works, which is the life blood of theatre,” said Zippel in an earlier statement. “Abingdon has created opportunities for countless emerging and established writers, actors, directors, and designers. I could not be more touched to be an honoree at their 30th Anniversary Gala and to have my lyrics performed by so many extraordinary performers.”
