The Cause Celebre Annual Gala
Cause Celebre celebrates its 10th Anniversary
In keeping with Cause Celebre’s mission, to connect theate and film with important causes, the evening’s program will feature monologues written by people from diverse backgrounds about a relative or close friend whom they have lost. The pieces will be performed by Broadway actors.
An example of one such monologue was written by Congressman Peter King about his close friend Jimmy Breslin. Though their political views were diametrically opposed, their friendship continued for years to come.
Congressman King wrote a very moving and humorous piece about his friend, which will be read by filmmaker, Kevin Breslin, the son of Jimmy Breslin.
This unique evening will begin with a cocktail party, followed by a show and dinner at Chez Josephine.
