Matthew Morrison to Honor Kelly O'Hara at 2015 Gala

By Charlie Nork
Individual Giving Manager


We are thrilled to announce that Broadway and television star Matthew Morrison will be joining us on September 21st to honor 2015 Tony Award winner Kelli O’Hara. This is an incredible one-night-only event that you won’t want to miss!

Matthew and Kelli appeared together in “The Light in the Piazza,” for which the two actors were each nominated for Tony Awards. He also portrayed Lt. Cable, while Kelli played Nellie Forbush, in the Tony Award-winning revival of “South Pacific” at Lincoln Center Theater. Matthew currently stars on Broadway as J.M Barrie in the musical “Finding Neverland.” He is perhaps best known for his role of Mr. Schuester on Fox’s musical comedy series “Glee”, which received Golden Globe Awards for “Best Television Series – Comedy or Musical” in 2010 and 2011.

The annual Playhouse Gala is a night of celebration of the artists and individuals whose work has impacted not only the Playhouse but the American theater at-large; our honorees have ranged from the beloved actress Phylicia Rashad, to Playhouse favorite A.R. Gurney, to celebrated composer John Kander.

This year, “Something Wonderful!” celebrates the work of Tony Award-winner Kelli O’Hara, who currently stars as Anna in the Broadway revival of “The King and I”. We are also proud to present the third annual Playhouse Leadership Award to John Samuelson.

The Playhouse Gala will take place on Monday, September 21, 2015, and tickets start at $250.

I am glad that I finally got a chance to check out this place. Great views, food at event venues Chicago is nice. The quality of service was great, and the environment were pretty comfortable. I’ll say I will look forward to visit again.
