On Wednesday May 29th over forty members of the 38th annual New York Gala Dinner Committee attended a Gallery Circle event and joined Chairman Loretta Brennan Glucksman to celebrate the success of the $3 million they helped collectively raise for The Promising Ireland campaign by attending a truly memorable performance of the TONY Award winning hit, ONCE on Broadway at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre.
Winner of eight 2012 Tony Awards including BEST MUSICAL, ONCE is a truly original Broadway experience.
Featuring an impressive ensemble of actor/musicians who play their own instruments onstage, ONCE tells the enchanting tale of a Dublin street musician who's about to give up on his dream when a beautiful young woman takes a sudden interest in his haunting love songs. As the chemistry between them grows, his music soars to powerful new heights… but their unlikely connection turns out to be deeper and more complex than an everyday romance.
Special thanks to all of our loyal committee volunteers who together “Once” again made this year’s NY Gala one to remember.
