Tony winner Michael R. Jackson and Oscar winner Common will be on hand later this month for Second Stage Theater's Winter’s Ball. The fundraising event, which is angled toward young professionals and patrons, will be held February 27 at The Pierre Hotel.
The event will begin with a cocktail party before Jackson will present an exclusive performance to attendees. The evening will come to a close with a dance party, hosted by Common, currently starring in Second Stage’s Between Riverside and Crazy. Festivities will begin at 8 PM, and are expected to end by 11 PM.
The evening’s co-chairs are Natasa and Michael Valocchi. The Host Committee includes Tara and Michael Adashev, Mia and Fergus Campbell, Janet Lynne Knopf, Sarah Kupferman, Dre and Pitch Lindsay, Max Needle, Anne and Adrian Perry, Victoria Tomkins, Sydney Wolofsky and Joshua Diamond.
All funds raised at the Winter's Ball will support Second Stage, and their upcoming slate of productions (which includes Jackson's world premiere musical White Girl in Danger, beginning performances later this year).
