Kristin Chenoweth is set to co-star opposite fellow Broadway boldface Matthew Broderick in CBS‘ untitled Tad Quill multi-camera comedy pilot directed by James Burrows. The project, from CBS TV Studios, centers on Jack (Broderick), a recently widowed father who raises his 12-year old son while jumping back into the dating pool. Chenoweth, repped by CAA, Untitled and attorney James Adams, will play Marnie, Jack’s cute but judgmental sister who works as a waitress at a nice but not-too-upscale restaurant. It is not clear if the two siblings share any musical talent. This marks Chenoweth’s return to CBS where she was booked for a major arc on The Good Wife last season, which was cut short by an on-set accident that injured the Tony-winner.
This year’s 2013 Annual Gala, which celebrates 30 years of the CANY mission of creativity, community and change to rebuild lives, will be held on Monday, April 29, 2013 at the Edison Hotel Ballroom (240 West 47th Street). The 2013 Honorees are Tony Award winners Katie Finneran and Kathleen Marshall, and in memoriam, CANY Founding Chairperson, Janet L. Levy.
Festivities begin at 6:30 p.m. with cocktails, appetizers and silent auction. Dinner, show and live auction start at 7:45 p.m. and includes a Special Performance by Tony Award winner Kristin Chenoweth, and video presentation by stage, film and television actor Victor Garber. Tony Award winner Judith Light will present the award to Ms. Finneran, Tony Award winner Matthew Broderick will present the award to Ms. Marshall, and CANY Founding Board Member James I. Black, III will present the award to Mrs. Levy’s family.
