This unGala is surely the biggest Gala WorkShop Theater Company has ever had! If you’ve not bought your tickets yet, please join us for a fantastic celebration of our community.
|THIS N’ That:
… On October 17th, The WorkShop Theater Company honors lyricistSheldon Harnick with its Jewel Box Award. This happens at The Lindeman (508 West 42nd Street).
Tovah Feldshuh, Sally Mayes, Michael McCormick and Robert Cuccioli will perform some of Harnick’s best work, from musicals such as “Fiddler on the Roof,” “She Loves Me,” “Fiorello!,” “The Rothschilds,” “Tenderloin” and one of my all-time favorites, “The Apple Tree.” (It would be bliss if the divine Tovah Feldshuh sang the entire “Passionella” section from “The Apple Tree.” That remains one of the wittiest satirical takes on fame and “glamour.”)
Theater critic Peter Filichia will chat with Harnick. For ticket info call 212-695-4173 or click here.

TAKE MY JAGGED HEART is set in North Dakota during the oil and gas boom. We follow the tangled lives of four young characters. Each came to Dakota full of desire and dreams, searching for opportunity. What they find are heartache, violence, and fragile love in a land brutalized by the boom.
FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC ON SUNDAY, OCTOBER 31st @6 PM
No Reserved Seating! Seating is on a first come, first served basis. Please arrive early to ensure seating.
