Stephen Colbert showed off his singing chops in Company and now the late night host is heading to the stage again! The TV personality, along with Tony winner Victoria Clark and The Bridges of Madison County lovers Kelli O’Hara and Steven Pasquale, will headline Lincoln Center Theater’s 2014 benefit, Act Two: A Swell Party With Moss Hart And Friends, on April 21 at the Vivian Beaumont Theater.
The event, directed by Tony winner Bartlett Sher, will feature songs, sketches, scenes and more celebrating the work of Moss Hart. Joining Colbert, Clark, O’Hara and Pasquale for the benefit performance are Tony nominees Malcolm Gets, David Garrison and Lewis J. Stadlen, along with Broadway vets Reneé Elise Goldsberry and Byron Jennings. Proceeds from the benefit will support Lincoln Center Theater’s productions and education programs.
Hart’s story, from early years to Pulitzer Prize-winning director and playwright, is currently being told on stage in Lincoln Center Theater’s production of Act One, written and directed by James Lapine and starring Tony Shalhoub, Santino Fontana and Andrea Martin.
