Theatre Communications Group, the national organization for theater, has announced that the 2024 TCG Gala: Our Stories will honor architect and designer David Rockwell, Broadway producer Brian Anthony Moreland, director Schele Wiliams and The Shubert Foundation. Outgoing executive director and CEO Teresa Eyring, who has been with the organization for 17 years, will also be celebrated at the event on March 11 at The Edison Ballroom in New York City.
TCG, founded in 1961, currently consists of 700 member theaters and affiliate organizations, as well as 7,000+ individual members. TCG supports students, theatergoers and theater professionals through its wide range of programs and services.
Past gala honorees include Samuel L. Jackson and LaTanya Richardson Jackson, David Henry Hwang, National Black Theatre Festival, playwright Tony Kushner, among many other prominent figures and organizations.
“I’m thrilled that my final Gala with TCG will honor such extraordinary artists and leaders as David Rockwell, Brian Anthony Moreland, Schele Williams, and The Shubert Foundation,” said Eyring. “Each in their own way works in the spirit of TCG’s mission to lead for a just and thriving theatre ecology. Whether you’ve seen a Broadway play that David has designed, Brian has produced, Schele has directed, or attended one of the countless theatre or dance performances across the country supported by The Shubert Foundation, chances are your life has been touched by these honorees. We can’t wait to honor them with a night of glorious performances!”
Co-chairs Rick Miramontez and Lauren Reid also released statements on the upcoming event.
Miramontez said, “I’ve had the privilege of working with each of this year’s honorees, and I can tell you with authority: these people know how to party. This night is going to put the F-U-N in fundraising.”
“Anyone who cares about the theater and making sure people throughout the country have access to it should care deeply about TCG,” said Reid. The work this organization does to ensure we have a thriving theater community stretching from coast to coast is nothing short of essential, and I can’t think of a better way to support that work than by coming out to honor to this magnificent line-up of friends and colleagues.”
