Scott Schwartz, Bay Street Theatre’s new artistic director, was given a welcome party, hosted by Bonnie Comley and Stewart Lane, at a private club in New York City last Thursday. The event was organized by the veteran producers to celebrate Mr. Schwartz’s appointment and to introduce him to Bay Street Theatre patrons and members of the Broadway theater community. Jeff Blumenkrantz, an actor and Tony-nominated composer and lyricist, performed two original songs.
Bay Street Theatre also announced an event to benefit its educational programs on Nov. 21 in New York City. Patrons will attend a performance of “Murder for Two,” directed by Mr. Schwartz, followed by a Q and A with cast members and the director.
