Star of stage and screen Amanda Plummer was the guest of honor at the annual Provincetown Tennessee Williams Theater Festival’s annual fund-raising gala over the weekend.

Festival curator David Kaplan presented the 1982 Tony winner with the TENN Award in recognition of her status as a foremost interpreter of the celebrated playwright, having appeared in numerous productions of both Williams’s famous and lesser-known plays.

Last year, Plummer starred in the American Repertory Theater’s revival of “The Night of the Iguana” alongside James Earl Jones, Bill Heck, and two previous TENN Award recipients, Elizabeth Ashley and Dana Delany.

Kaplan also announced the artistic programming for the 13th Provincetown Tennessee Williams festival, which runs Sept. 27-30. It includes the world premiere of “Talisman Roses,” to be directed by Marsha Mason. Dinner guests also got a sneak peek of a scene from “The Rose Tattoo” by festival favorite Irene Glezos, who’ll star as Serafina in the show. The gala also paid tribute to Jef Hall-Flavin, who’s stepping down as the festival’s executive director.

Meanwhile, “Good Morning America” host Michael Strahan, former NBA star Chris Bosh, and Bruins captain Zdeno Chara were all spotted at Noir at the Charles Hotel the other night. The three were celebrating the completion of their Harvard Business School program, The Business of Entertainment, Media, and Sports.
