Fundraiser for AST Arts a Huge Success
The weekend of August 21-22 saw a fun-packed series of events for theater enthusiasts. Madison Cox organized a fundraiser to benefit the arts at AST, as well as for the American legation, and the Memoires d’Avenir Cooperative. The main event was a reading at the Villa Leon L’Africain of Suddenly Last Summer directed by Rob Ashford (Director of the recent remake of the movie Cinderella), and a cast of Broadway actors/actresses including Ruth Wilson, Linda Lavin and Tom Bateman, who brought the concept of a play reading to new heights.The two other signature events were an evening reception at the American Legation, and a picnic lunch at the McBey Sea House, a special location bequeathed to AST by Margaret McBey.
