Tony Award Winner Jack O’Brien Speaking About the Power of Live Theatre at ATC’s 2023 Gala

Tony Award Winning Director, Producer, and Lyricist Jack O’Brien is no stranger to the power of live theatre. Jack is a pioneer of American Regional Theatre, winning three Tony Awards for his direction of Hairspray, Henry IV, and Coast of Utopia. He was also the Artistic Director for the Old Globe from 1981 to 2007, but more importantly he is the mentor of our own Kasser Family Artistic Director, Matt August. ATC recently honored Jack with the Georgy Award at our gala on October 14th.

Because of this, gifts made to ATC from a DAF are not eligible for donor benefits that have a fair market value associated with them. Please contact the organization holding your DAF for more information on making charitable contributions to ATC or if you have any questions about the tax deductibility of your gift.
