Spring Benefit @ Bay Street

Darrell Hammond

Bay Street Theatre in Sag Harbor celebrated the kickoff to its 20th Season with a Spring Benefit on April 3, 2011 to promote their first Mainstage Show TRU, starring SNL’S Darrell Hammond as Truman Capote and directed by the acclaimed actress Judith Ivey, which begins performances on May 31. The benefit event began with a brunch at The American Hotel attended by Darrell Hammond, and was followed by piano music back at Bay Street Theatre with a champagne toast, raffles, and a special screening of the classic film BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY’S, based on the novella by Truman Capote starring Audrey Hepburn in one of her most memorable roles. Robin Sparacio won the raffle for a silver beaded Tiffany & Co. necklace donated by a patron and she also tied with Jane Holden in a contest for the best Audrey Hepburn costume.

The brunch was generously underwritten by an anonymous donor so all proceeds for this event benefited Bay Street Theatre.
