The Irish Repertory Theatre began its 30th-anniversary season honoring Tina Sainti Flaherty, the author, philanthropist, and businesswoman, at its annual gala on June 4 at the Town Hall in N.Y.C. Broadway stars, such as Jeremy Irons and Melissa Errico, backed by a live orchestra and a full chorus, celebrated the life and music of Alan Jay Lerner on the centenary of his birth, with long time favorites from Brigadoon, Paint Your Wagon, Gigi, My Fair Lady, and other hit shows. The performance was followed by dinner at Bryant Park Grill. The Irish Repertory Theatre, located at 132 W 22nd St, New York, N.Y., was founded by Charlotte Moore and Ciaran O’Reilly in 1988. ♦
