Let Me Try That Again: Take 5 with Gavin Creel and Ben Platt
October 15, 2017
Starring Tony Award-Winners Gavin Creel and Ben Platt together with their Broadway friends (to be announced soon!).
Great performers relive their terrible performances in the fifth annual benefit for The Performing Arts Project at 54 Below.
Susan Blackwell hosts an evening of fabulous performers sharing their most embarrassing moments onstage and then redeeming themselves by recreating that moment. At the end of the evening, the audience will vote on the star performer who most redeemed themselves through their efforts that night.
“This benefit is to remind us all that we all have failed. And failed miserably; in my case in particular,” says event co-founder Steven Pasquale. “But it’s also to remind us about persistence, and focus, and moving forward. And about recognizing how important it is to not take ourselves too seriously. It will be a crazy fun night.”
Let Me Try That Again: Take 5 is an annual benefit for The Performing Arts Project: a not-for-profit organization that provides vibrant theatrical training to a generation of young performers. The Performing Arts Project offers dynamic and constantly evolving annual programming, the cornerstone of which are their summer intensives. Funds raised during this benefit will go directly towards scholarships and student programming costs. For more information, visit performingartsproject.com.
