If you’re current on your Broadway stars, then you know how very special this announcement is — two-time Tony nominee Gavin Creel (pictured) will headline the 2010 Black Tie Dinner with the Turtle Creek Chorale on Saturday, Nov. 6, at the Sheraton Dallas.
Gavin earned his Tony nominations for his lead role in the 2002 production of Thoroughly Modern Millie and the 2009 for his performance in the revival of Hair.
But Gavin is more than gorgeous with matching voice. He’s is one of the founders of Broadway Impact, an organization fighting for equality and the LGBT civil liberties. In fact, OUT Magazine‘s listed Gavin as one of the “OUT 100” for his work with Broadway Impact and the National Equality March.
Turtle Creek Chorale Artistic Director Dr. Jonathan Palant said, “We are doubly honored this year to be both a beneficiary of and a performer at Black Tie Dinner. As the Chorale strives to reach its mission “to educate, entertain, unite and uplift,” we are proud to stand strong with Black Tie Dinner once again.
“Personally speaking, it’s been 13 years since Gavin and I completed our undergraduate degrees together at the University of Michigan, and I very much look forward to collaborating with him again!”
