Pleasantville-based Axial Theatre will be celebrating its 20th anniversary on March 30 at its annual benefit by paying tribute to its founder, Howard Meyer. Meyer, the original artistic director of Axial and an award-winning playwright, is also the founder of the Howard Meyer Acting program, the County’s first major multi-tiered acting program for children through adults. Last year, Meyer turned the keys of the ensemble company over to Catherine “Cat” Banks and Linda Giuliano, now Axial’s co-artistic directors, who form a trio working closely with managing director/general counsel Elizabeth “Betsy” Klampert. Giuliano remains the company’s literary manager.
The benefit will offer a cornucopia of gourmet bites, savory and sweet, plus libations and a silent auction featuring a one-week getaway in Cinque Terre on the Mediterranean coastline of the Italian Riviera, Broadway tickets, and other exciting items. Past and present members of Axial Theatre will pay tribute to Howard Meyer through a variety of entertainment formats.
