Published in Broadway

Nice Work If You Can Get It, the latest "new" musical with music derived from the trunk of the brothers Gershwin, George and Ira,  is a standout among this season's musical entries; nothing beats it for sheer unadulterated escapism.   It also happens to sport two of the funniest performances of the season, they are from Michael McGrath and Judy Kaye, both nominated for Tony Awards for their performances (my prediction is that both will win.)   He’s a booze running gangster with a tinge of Three Stooges.  She’s a staunch prohibitionist (à la Carrie Nation), that is until she inadvertently becomes inebriated and swings from the chandelier, I mean literally.  It will have you rolling in the aisle.

A 20TH ANNIVERSARY BENEFIT CELEBRATING FRIENDS IN DEED

“A LITTLE JURASSIC TREASURE HUNT”

HOSTED BY  SARAH JESSICA PARKER AND MATTHEW BRODERICK

 HUNT DEVISED BY STEPHEN  SONDHEIM

PERFORMANCE BYBARBARA COOK AND RAUL ESPARZA

 

MONDAY, OCTOBER 3, 2011

AT THE AMERICAN MUSEUM OF NATURAL HISTORY

www.FriendsInDeed.org

{module ad_left_body}For two decades Friends In Deed has offered emotional and spiritual support for all those affected by life threatening illness, caregiving and grief.  In celebration of the 20th anniversary of Friends In Deed, Emmy Award winner Sarah Jessica Parker and Tony Award winner Matthew Broderick will host “A Little Jurassic Treasure Hunt,” a once-in-a-lifetime event on Monday, October 3, 2011.   At this special benefit event, guests will form teams to trace clues through the American Museum of Natural History in a specially devised hunt created by legendary composer/lyricist Stephen Sondheim.   Following a cocktail reception in The Museum’s Hall of Mammals, the hunt will take place in the Hall of Saurischian Dinosaurs and the Hall of Ornithischian Dinosaurs before a dinner reception in the RoseCenter for Earth and Space.  The dinner reception will feature performances of Mr. Sondheim’s songs by Tony Award winner Barbara Cook and Tony nominee Raul Esparza.

“I'm thrilled that Stephen Sondheim has lent his name and brilliance to help Friends In Deed,” says Broadway actor and Friends In Deed Board Member Anthony Rapp. “Mr. Sondheim’s treasure hunts are quite legendary, and rare, and I feel privileged to get to partake in one. This event will go a long way in allowing Friends In Deed to continue its life saving work.” 

MORE ABOUT THE TREASURE HUNT:

For decades, Stephen Sondheim has famously devised private treasure hunt parties. In the late 1960's Sondheim started hosting game nights with friends. They gradually grew in size and complexity. In one of his famed Halloween Hunts, created with Anthony Perkins, the participants arrived at an old brownstone, rang the bell and were invited in by an unknown white-haired lady who is was sworn to answer no questions. Tensely, they waited for their next message as she served coffee and cake in silence. Film star Lee Remick was hungry and ate her portion. "Stop!" shouted the group-leader …too late. Rearranged, the icing on the cake would have revealed the map reference of their next rendezvous.

This year, Mr. Sondheim has offered to create a special hunt to benefit Friends In Deed and celebrate their two decades of invaluable work.  This event marks a rare occasion when members of the public will have the opportunity to participate.
