Embrace the Season:
A Drama League Gala Celebration

The Drama League’s annual Benefit Gala, Embrace the Season: A Drama League Gala Celebration, took place at City Winery New York on Monday, October 17, 2022.
All donations supported the next generation of directors as we honored our 2022 Arts Ally Award Recipients, Luigi Caiola and Rose Caiola from Caiola Productions. 


Guests enjoyed a sunset cocktail reception, followed by an elegant three-course dinner and live show-stopping performances and appearances from the upcoming Broadway season, including Back to the Future, Bliss, Death of a Salesman, KPOP, The Karate Kid, The Piano Lesson, A Man of No Importance, and more — directed by Tony nominee Sheryl Kaller.
