Hurricane Sandy was truly a show-stopper for Landmark on Main's Spotlight Gala planned for November 3, 2012. But the company is taking it from the top and hopes you'll join the Spotlight Gala (Take 2) on Friday, May 10, 2013 at 7 PM.
Broadway Leading Lady Stephanie J. Block will enchant with a concert performance followed by a fabulous celebration in the tented Spotlight Club.
Landmark is proud to honor Sheila & John Platt and Judith & Morton Sloan for their contributions to the organization and the community.
Stephanie J. Block has established herself as one of the most relevant and versatile voices in contemporary musical theatre. She is currently starring as Alice Nutting/Edwin Drood in The Roundabout Theatre's production of The Mystery of Edwin Drood. Other Broadway credits include playing Reno Sweeney in the 2011 Tony Award winning revival of Anything Goes, the role of Judy Bernly in 9 To 5: The Musical for which she earned a Drama Desk nomination for Best Actress in a Musical. She created the roles of Grace O'Malley in The Pirate Queen and Liza Minnelli in The Boy From Oz (opposite Hugh Jackman). Ms. Block is best known for her portrayal as Elphaba in the Broadway company of Wicked as well as originating the role in the First National Tour for which she won numerous awards including the prestigious Helen Hayes Award for Outstanding Actress in a Musical. The Landmark's Spotlight will Shine Like the Sun (9 To 5) as Broadway's Number One Leading Lady Stephanie J. Block stars in Spotlight Gala, Take 2!
After the performance Gala attendees are invited to enjoy gourmet foods and beverages (including a signature Hurricane cocktail) in the tented reception hall.
