Tony and Emmy Award-Winner Tyne Daly
to Perform at Ensemble Theatre Company's
Gala Opening Celebration of The New Vic Theater
Ensemble Theatre Company of Santa Barbara (ETC) and Jonathan Fox, Executive Artistic Director, are pleased to announce that stage and screen star Tyne Daly will perform at ETC's gala fund raising event, CURTAIN UP. Ms. Daly won the Tony Award for her performance as Mama Rose in the 1989 Broadway hit revival of Gypsy. Widely known for her work as Detective Mary Beth Lacey in the television series "Cagney & Lacey" and as Maxine Gray in the television series "Judging Amy," Ms. Daly has received six Emmy Awards for her television work.
CURTAIN UP celebrates the completion of the New Vic Theater at 33 West Victoria Street on November 9, 2013. All proceeds for this event will support ETC's maiden season at its new home. As the only 300-seat theater in downtown Santa Barbara, the completed New Vic will be a wonderful new home for ETC and a flexible, intimate venue for other performing arts throughout the greater Santa Barbara area. ETC's is very grateful to Montecito Bank & Trust and committee co-chairs Leatrice Luria and Kandy Luria-Budgor for their support of this event.
While the main dinner event at CURTAIN UP is sold out, tickets are still available for the After-Party, which begins at 9:30pm and includes an open bar and desserts, as well as dancing on the New Vic stage with music by world-renowned DJ Michael Smith.
ETC's 2013-14 season at the New Vic begins on December 5, 2013 with the beloved Stephen Sondheim musical A Little Night Music, starting Stephanie Zimbalist and Piper Laurie.
