“When choosing this year’s TDF honoree we realized that every TDF program has participated in Kinky Boots. We’re thrilled to honor the show’s lead producers Daryl Roth and Hal Luftig, the entire cast, company, producing team, management team and house staff who have been wonderful and supportive partners,” said TDF’s Executive Director Victoria Bailey. “Over the years at Kinky Boots, we’ve introduced the theatre to thousands of NYC public school students through all of our education programs – Stage Doors, Open Doors and Residency Program, provided access for adults and children with low vision and hearing loss with open captioning sign language interpretation and audio description, and on May 7 our Autism Theatre Initiative will present the first autism friendly performance of the show. Everyone involved in the production has supported our mission of making theatre accessible.”

The chair for the event is TDF Trustee Betsy Miller.  The Al Hirschfeld Theatre is located at 302 West 45th Street, NYC.Ticket prices range from $100 to $2500. There will be a VIP pre-show cocktail reception at the Broadway Lounge of the Marriott Marquis at 6pm.
