On Broadway, he has staged Side Man, Spring Awakening, Thoroughly Modern Millie, American Idiot, and Hedwig and the Angry Inch. He is the director of the upcoming musical Head Over Heels, featuring the songs of the Go-Go's.

The event will include a cocktail hour and auction, dinner, and a 35th-anniversary performance featuring artists of stage and screen, to be announced.
