The winner of the 2013 Pulitzer Price, DISGRACED is an explosive tale of the stories we tell our friends, the secrets we tell our lovers, and the lies we tell ourselves to find our place in the American Dream.

Following sold-out engagements in Chicago, London and New York, this “rollicking play that bristles with wit and intelligence” (The New York Times) makes its Broadway premiere this September.

Starring Josh Radnor (“How I Met Your Mother”), Gretchen Mol (“Boardwalk Empire”), Karen Pittman (Domesticated), and Hari Dhillon (star of the acclaimed London’s Bush Theatre production), and written by Ayad Akhtar, one of the most astonishing new voices in American theatre, this proactive tale of big city aspiration and cultural assimilation dares to face the truth hiding just below the deception.

Winning masks to be auctioned to benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS

Producers Cameron Mackintosh and The Really Useful Group announced today an extensive multi-tiered art contest in connection with the longest-running show in Broadway history, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, directed by Harold Prince. 

PHANTOM: THE ART OF THE MASK invites the musical’s “Phans” and all artists across the country to submit original artwork on a template of the legendary Phantom’s mask.  Designed by the late Tony Award-winning designer Maria Bj√∂rnson, the mask has become one of the most iconic images in Broadway history.  The contest will culminate in an exhibit at the PHANTOM Art Gallery and Pop-Up Shop, which will open on the ground floor of The Paramount Hotel (235 West 46th Street), just one block from the musical’s stage door at The Majestic Theatre.

The first phase of the contest will feature artists registering on the PHANTOM Facebook page (www.Facebook.com/PhantomBroadway) and submitting a two-dimensional design on the template of the mask provided by the production.  Artists are encouraged to design whatever inspires them and aren’t limited to designs based on the show itself.  26 winners (in honor of the New York production’s record-breaking 26 Years) will then each have the chance to recreate their designs on a three-dimensional replica mask that will be sent out to them by the production. 

Once submitted, all 26 masks will be displayed at the special PHANTOM Art Gallery and Pop-Up Shop at the Paramount Hotel at the end of October.  Of the initial 26 winners, five will be selected as Grand Prize winners by members of the cast and creative team in early October. 

The initial 26 winners will be awarded a souvenir brochure of the musical and a winner’s certificate. In addition to the brochure and certificate, the five Grand Prize winners will also receive a voucher for a pair of tickets to the show and a photo of their mask with cast members.

Representing the production’s ongoing commitment to the Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, all 26 masks will be auctioned off to benefit the non-profit fundraising organization.  Since the musical’s opening, the New York Company of PHANTOM has proudly raised $5.5 million for BCEFA.
