Special Events

SpeakEasy hosts a variety of special events — both on and off the stage.  From entertaining galas to director’s events, these theatrical affairs celebrate our season’s successes with donors, subscribers, artists and other supporters. All the events raise funds that directly support our mission of bringing premiere theatre to Boston and sparking thoughtful conversation long after the curtain falls. Such events have included our annual Spring Gala, prohibition-themed cabarets, and more.

On Friday, April 8, 2022, over 250 excited SpeakEasy supporters gathered at Boston’s Park Plaza Hotel for our 2022 Spring Gala! The event, which was our first event of this nature in over three years, began with a lively cocktail hour, an extravagant silent auction, and a mystery wine raffle.

The evening continued with a gourmet three-course meal and performance hosted by SpeakEasy favorite Amy Jo Jackson. We were thrilled to celebrate our 2022 honorees: Alex Baker (Mayor Thomas M. Menino Memorial Award) and Miguel Cervantes (Artistic Excellence Award). Read more about our honorees on our gala website!

We also finally had the opportunity to honor our 2020 Award recipients: Keith MacDonald (Mayor Thomas M. Menino Memorial Award) and the Front Porch Arts Collective (Community Impact Award).

The evening ended with a special performance from Hamilton‘s Miguel Cervantes, who took the night off from Broadway to celebrate with us, alongside music director Joe Delgado. Audiences were leaping out of their seats!

Thanks to the generosity of our community, both in the room and out, we raised a record-breaking $248,000 at this event. We are so grateful to all the sponsors, tickets buyers, donors, artists, vendors, and volunteers who made this possible. See you again next spring!
