Jason Danieley and Marin Mazzie, the gifted Broadway stars (who also happen to be real-life husband and wife) will be the featured performers at the June 17 Gala 2013 Celebration of the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. The event ...... will kick off the company's 2013-2014 season, and will generate support for its education programs, including Team Shakespeare and Chicago Shakespeare in the Parks.
Musical theater master Stephen Sondheim, as well as former mayor Richard M. Daley will be the evening's honorees and recipients of the Spirit of Shakespeare Awards. Both honorees are expected to be in attendance.
Danieley played the lead in the Chicago Shakespeare production of Sondheim's "Sunday in the Park with George" earlier this season. Mazzie was recently seen opposite Danieley in the Pulitzer Prize-winning Broadway musical "Next to Normal."
The Gala will be held at Chicago Shakespeare's home at 800 E. Grand on Navy Pier. Approximately 500 guests will enjoy a three-course dinner served throughout the theater's multi-level lobbies, each offering views of Chicago's skyline.
