La Grande Jatte Soirée
Friday, June 23, 2017

Join co-chairs Leni Moore and Ron Frey for the Guthrie's annual fundraising gala on Opening Night of our summer musical, Sunday in the Park with George, helmed by Artistic Director Joseph Haj. Proceeds from La Grande Jatte Soirée support community engagement and educational programming.

A highlight of La Grande Jatte Soirée will be a pre-dinner musical prelude performed by three-time Tony Award winner Bernadette Peters, who originated the role of Dot in the Sondheim musical Off-Broadway and in its 1984 Broadway premiere. Ms. Peters will perform a handful of songs from her repertoire of Sondheim favorites.
