The Rehearsal Club 110th Birthday Gala

October 20, 2023 @ 6:30 PM - 9:30 PM


The Rehearsal Club (TRC), the legendary rooming house for aspiring actresses, celebrates its 110th birthday on October 20 with a Gala event hosted by Emmy and Tony Award winner Blythe Danner at The Players (16 Gramercy Park South) at 6:30pm.

An original Rehearsal Club resident, Danner resided at the Club at the start of her illustrious career. She received two Emmy awards for her role on Showtime’s Huff and was nominated twice for roles on Will & Grace and in Joyce Carol Oates’ We Were the Mulvaneys. Her film roles include The Great Santini, the Meet the Parents trilogy and Sylvia, a film in which she appeared with her daughter, actress and entrepreneur Gwyneth Paltrow.

In a statement Blythe Danner said, “More than 50 years later, I look back at all this and think how blessed we were.”

To purchase tickets to The Rehearsal Club’s 110th Anniversary Gala on October 20:

At the Gala, a glittering one hour Rehearsal Club Revue will feature musical performances from original members of the Club — including Cynthia Darlow (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel), Andrea Frierson (Harlem, Broadway’s The Lion King and Once on this Island) and Debbie Andrews, reprising her role as “Crissy” from the original Broadway production of HAIR — alongside a new generation of Rehearsal Club Residents. The event includes a silent auction of celebrity donated clothing, a preview of The Rehearsal Club’s revival of its traditional Wardrobe Sale which will take place for the first time in 44 years on October 21. An After-Glow Birthday Salute, hosted by celebrated comic Nicky Sunshine, follows with special guests.

The Rehearsal Club, unique in NYC, provides affordable housing to diverse and deserving young women who are pursuing careers in the entertainment industry. Additional support includes mentors, master classes, workshops and networking opportunities that build confidence and community. Through a rigorous selection process, subsidies are granted to the most talented applicants. Funds raised at the Gala will go to support this initiative.

Gale Patron, TRC Board President: “To see Rehearsal Club alums share the stage with our new aspiring sisters is a true miracle! “
