Special Events

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 14, 2023, SpeakEasy supporters will once again gather at Boston’s Park Plaza Hotel for a night of joyous celebration! The 2023 Spring Gala will begin with a lively cocktail hour followed by our awards presentation, seated dinner, and live performances from some of the best musical theatre talent in Boston and beyond. Guests will have the opportunity to bid on our silent auction throughout the evening, with all proceeds benefiting SpeakEasy’s 22-23 Season.

This year, we are honored to celebrate our honorees: Kerry A. Dowling (Mayor Thomas M. Menino Memorial Award), James “Joey” Caverly (Artistic Excellence Award), and the still to be announced winner(s) of the Thomas Derrah Emerging Artist Award. You can read more about our honorees here.
