Abingdon Theatre Company celebrated its 2015-2016 Season with ABINGDON: REFLECTIONS OF STARLIGHT, its annual benefit gala and dinner, on Monday, October 26 at Espace (635 West 42nd Street in Manhattan). Richard Jay-Alexander, best known for directing Barbra Streisand and other artists in concert,  directed the event, which began at 6:00pm.

The entertaining evening honored Tony Award-winning costume designer Jane Greenwood, who designed Abingdon's acclaimed production of Hellman v. McCarthy; Abingdon Theatre Company's Vice Chair and former Managing Director, Heather Henderson; and one of New York's most prominent lawyers in entertainment, Mark D. Sendroff.

Proceeds benefit Abingdon Theatre Company's mission to develop and produce new plays. Abingdon Theatre Company's 23rd Annual Benefit Gala features tributes to the honorees, plus entertainment, silent and live auctions, and exciting surprises throughout the night
Under Richard Jay-Alexander's direction, the evening featured special appearances by Lucie Arnaz, Walter Bobbie, Hunter Ryan Herdlicka, Linda Lavin, Roberta Maxwell, Marilyn Maye, Billy Stritch, and Holland Taylor.

Presented with the Tony Award for Lifetime Achievement, Jane Greenwood has designed costumes for more than 130 Broadway shows. Her credits extend to film and television. She designed costumes for Abingdon’s production of Brian Richard Mori’s Hellman v. McCarthy. Abingdon honors Ms. Greenwood's artistic excellence in the American theatre.
Currently Abingdon’s Vice Chair, Heather Henderson has served on its Board for six years, joining the staff as Director of Development and Managing Director. She successfully negotiated sending Abingdon’s production of The Last Will to China’s Wuzhen Theatre Festival and the taping of Hellman v. McCarthy for the inaugural season of “Theater Close-Up” on WNET/Thirteen. Abingdon honors Ms. Henderson's excellence in theatre management.
