The LAByrinth Theater Company's Fourth Annual LAByrinth Theater Company Benefit featuring Celebrity Charades was held Monday, November 13th.
The evening began with a VIP Reception at Bobby Van's Steakhouse (25 Broad Street at Exchange Place), followed by cocktails and hors d'oeuvres, a silent auction and the presentation of The Hoghe Award to Daryl Roth in honor of her artistic courage and outstanding dedication to LAByrinth Theater Company. The main event began at The Downtown Auditorium (41 Broad Street) at 8 PM; it included a Live Auction and Celebrity Charades.
Celebrity players who appeared included: LAByrinth co-Artistic Director Philip Seymour Hoffman, as well as Daphne Rubin-Vega, Bobby Cannavale, Erika Christensen, Dana Delany, Rachel Dratch, Gina Gershon, Josh Hamilton, John Hawkes, Jay Hernandez, Anthony Mackie, Julianna Margulies, Cynthia Rowley, and Robin Williams.
"Celebrity players will battle for the Championship Belt in four teams. The team led by Philip Seymour Hoffman (with Billy Crudup, Sam Rockwell and Justin Theroux) was reigning world champion until last year when their title was snatched away. This year, they're extra-hungry…and the rumor is that they'll be dressed for some serious old-school NYC ass-kicking. At the end of the night as the teams stumble out into the crisp Wall Street air, who will be carrying that belt, and who will be licking their wounds? Who will be the 2006 Celebrity Charades Champion of Old New York? And who will get in to witness it all?," stated press notes
