Palm Beach Dramaworks is thrilled to announce Broadway's legendary restaurant Sardi's, will be the theme of its 11th annual Spring Gala, an evening of dinner and entertainment on Saturday, March 19th (6:30PM) to benefit and celebrate West Palm Beach's longest residing theater company. At a recent planning meeting for the gala in Manhattan, Sardi's owner Max Klimavicius graciously granted the Gala's co-chairmen Calla and Ralph Guild, permission to use the restaurants well known logo, elements of the restaurant, and their legendary caricatures as themes for what promises to be a "must-attend" event this spring. Co-chaired by the Guilds, the evening will feature a celebratory cocktail hour in the beautiful Cohen Pavilion lobby. Guests will then be magically transported to Times Square and into the world famous Sardi's restaurant, where countless caricatures of theatre and film stars will line the walls.
