The Drama League holds its 2022 fall gala Embrace The Season: A Drama League Celebration at City Winery October 17. Tony nominee Sheryl Kaller (Mothers and Sons, Next Fall) directs the evening featuring sneak peek performances from the new musicals of the 2022-23 Broadway and Off-Broadway season, as well as highlights from recent seasons.
The Broadway Sinfonietta serves as the house band for the black tie optional gala, which includes cocktails and hors d'oeuvres.
The Drama League has been an artistic resource for directors and theatre makers since 1916. The fall gala will coincide with the presentation of its annual Arts Ally Award, given to those who strengthen the foundation of the arts in the United States. The 2022 honoree is Caiola Productions, a New York-based production and investment company that is responsible for the revivals of Company and Little Shop of Horrors, as well as The Inheritance and Dear Evan Hansen.
Event production is by Ali Skye Bennet, with production management by Teresa Cruz, stage management by Karen Schleifer, music supervision by Macy Schmidt, assistant direction by Tai Thompson, second assistant direction by Andrew Coopman, and assistant stage management by Joanna Muhlfelder. Beethovan Oden is the announcer.
