Incoming Harvard president Lawrence Bacow made one of his first public appearances since being chosen to succeed Drew Faust, attending the American Repertory Theater’s annual gala with his wife, Adele.
The event at the Boch Center Wang Theater, which raised $1.3 million to support the theater, was attended by over 400 people, including ART trustee Ann Gund and her husband, Graham, and ART trustee Paul Buttenwieser and his wife, Katie, as well as Barbara Hostetter, Joyce Linde, Amy Abrams, Susan Paine, Lillie Johnson, and Katharine Weymouth.
The evening included a sneak peek performance from the ART’s upcoming production of “Jagged Little Pill,” a new musical based on Alanis Morissette’s hit album. Guests were treated to “Uninvited,” “Forgiven,” and “You Learn,” performed by cast members Laurel Harris, Logan Hart, Sophie Menas, Nora Schell, and Elizabeth Stanley. The musical is directed by ART artistic director Diane Paulus with a book by Diablo Cody and orchestrations by Tom Kitt.
Buttenwieser was honored with the ART Angel Award in recognition of his commitment to the theater.
