Performance Space 122 Gala Benefit 2005
May 2, 2005
at Webster Hall

Performance Space 122 Celebrates 25 Years of groundbreaking Live Theater in New York City with a special gala benefit honoring theater producer David Binder and featuring the presentation of the first annual Ethyl Eichelberger Award honoring one of today’s most promising and adventurous young theater artists.

LIVE ONSTAGE! will be hosted by Lisa Kron and Marga Gomez and will feature performances by exciting new theater artists that have emerged from Performance Space 122’s stages in recent years, including Richard Maxwell, Elevator Repair Service, Richard Move, Julie Atlas Muz, Mike Albo, Radiohole, National Theater of the United States of America, The Civilians and more.

Our honoree, David Binder, has spent the last decade bringing alternative audiences and new artists to the theater. He produced the first Broadway revival of Lorraine Hansberry’s classic A Raisin in the Sun starring Sean Combs which won two Tony awards and was also recognized for the incredibly young and diverse audience it brought to the theater. David is also the original producer of the rock’n’roll musical Hedwig and the Angry Inch. Other productions include the long-running smash De la Guarda, Lisa Kron’s 2.5 Minute Ride and Kenneth Lonergan’s Lobby Hero. A long-time friend of Performance Space 122’s, we wanted to honor David’s work as an adventurous off-Broadway producer and a supporter of our work.

The evening will begin at 6:00 p.m. with cocktails and dinner for our Sponsors, Patrons, and VIP guests and continue with performances and dancing for a larger group of performers, theater lovers, and members of the city’s arts community. Celebrity DJs Johnny Dynell, Billy Beyond and John Roberts will keep the party hopping and our annual art auction -featuring work from Jo Andres, Charles Atlas, Josef Astor, Nicle Eisenman, Alexandra Eldridge, Patricia Field, Nan Goldin, Gia Grosso, Scott Lifshutz, Dona Ann McAdams, Patrick McMullan, Amy Sillman, and more – is sure to be a highlight. We hope you will join us for what promises to be one of the most exciting events of the season.
