Elaine May at HB Studio Gala

If there was ever an age to celebrate with a blowout party, it would be 100. And while the actress and activist Uta Hagen passed away in 2004, her 100th birthday was cause for a big celebration on June 10, when nearly 250 guests attended the HB Studio Gala held in her memory. A crowd including Elaine May, Phil Donohue, Victor Garber, and three generations of Hagen’s descendants joined hosts David Hyde Pierce and Katie Finneran to celebrate Hagen and honor a group including Marlo Thomas (who won the Uta Hagen Legacy Award), John David Washington (who won the HB Next Generation Award), and Alexander Bernstein (who won the HB Community Leader Award). Proceeds from the evening will support HB Studio’s training and development programs for actors, playwrights, and directors. Read the article.
