Virtual Event

Join us for an unforgettable night as we celebrate our past and toast our future. This virtual benefit will feature special appearances from the newly announced inaugural Trish Vradenburg Jewish Play Prize and Patty Abramson Jewish Play Prize winners, Joshua Harmon and Nicole Cox, an exclusive sneak-peek excerpt of Harmon’s prize-winning NYC-bound new play Prayer for the French Republic, and a tribute to the past three decades and the vital role that Theater J has played in our community.

Commissioned by Manhattan Theatre Club, Harmon’s new play is a moving and powerful reflection of the history of trauma and prejudice embedded within five generations of one extraordinary Jewish family. The Benefit excerpt will be directed by David Cromer, Tony Award-winning director of The Band’s Visit and 2010 MacArthur Foundation Fellow.
