BEDFORD, N.Y. -- Celebrities living in Northern Westchester showed their support for the Bedford Playhouse renovation project Friday night, lending their talents to a brief performance in front of a small, appreciative crowd.
The fundraiser - 'Playing for the Playhouse' - was billed as a celebration of the movies and performing arts, and was held at the Harvey School's Walker Center for the Arts in Katonah.
The event included a cocktail reception and the show, which was hosted by Bedford Playhouse President John Farr, and included performances by Glenn Close and Paul Shaffer, Jeffrey Tambor, Chazz Palminteri, Mrs. Marvin Hamlisch and Marissa McGowan and Robert Klein.
Bedford resident Chevy Chase was also scheduled to appear, but was unable to attend due to a professional commitment.
The Playhouse mission is to provide a vibrant cultural and social destination dedicated to screening the best films for discerning adults and families, as well as being a community hub for social gatherings, special events and educational programs relating to film and the arts.
Check out the video to see Daily Voice talk to Farr and Playhouse Chairman of the Board Sarah Long about the renovation project.
