Alan Alda will be the recipient of the M. Edgar Rosenblum Award during Irondale Ensemble Project’s 35th Anniversary benefit. The M. Edgar Rosenblum Award is Irondale’s way of honoring people that, through their work and their core values, demonstrate a commitment to enriching their own unique audiences and communities through the arts. The award is named for one of the most innovative producers in the American not-for-profit theater. It recognizes artists, public servants, educators, and community and business leaders whose actions reflect the values of the company. Mr. Alda is being recognized for his work as an actor, writer and director and his working using theatrical improvisation to enhance science communication.
Proceeds from the Gala go to support Irondale’s theatre-based learning and community programs. Visit Irondale's announcement page to purchase tickets.
Each year we honor someone whose life, work and character inspires our own, and Alan Alda is such a person. His work as an actor and writer is reason enough to be awarded, but his commitment to using theater as a way for people to better understand each other, and the world we live in, has inspired Irondale Ensembles' work. There is no one better suited for us to honor.
