The American Theatre Wing celebrated composer, producer, and philanthropist Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber at its annual Gala September 24 at Cipriani 42nd Street. The event raised $1,652,502 in support of the Wing’s programs and the Andrew Lloyd Webber Initiative Legacy Fund, breaking all previous records.
The evening, a celebration of the Wing’s 101 years of supporting strong and fearless voices in the American theatre, featured a star-studded musical tribute to Lloyd Webber’s body of work. The composer, who recently celebrated his 70th birthday, is currently represented on Broadway with School of Rock and The Phantom of the Opera—the latter is Broadway's longest-running production.
The funds raised will support the Wing’s programs, which champion theatrical excellence at every stage.
