We wanted to share with you a great event that will be happening this Monday, March 21st: The Actors’ Temple Annual Gala.
This annual fundraising event will be at 7:30pm on March 21st at The Actors’ Temple. The performance will be to help raise fund for much-needed restorations for The Actors’ Temple.
We have only recently read the history of this amazing building at 339 West 47th Street between 8th and 9th Avenues. It was built in 1917 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The stars who built this Temple paved the way for Jewish actors, dancers, comedians, directors and Broadway productions to be taken seriously and to have careers in New York—the likes of Sophie Tucker, The Three Stooges, The Ritz Brothers, the Marx Brothers, Milton Berle, Shelly Winters and so many more.

The performance for the evening will be Falling in Love with Love: The Romantic Songs of Richard Rodgers, starring our dear friend and wonderful performer Anna Bergman.
