More than 60 Bennington alumni—including Emmy, Tony, and Golden Globe winners and nominees—came together at The Public Theater to write, rehearse, and present six one-act plays within 24 hours. Talent consisted of: Brooks Ashmanskas ’91, Tim Daly ’79, Peter Dinklage ’91, Joel Marsh Garland ’97, and Holland Taylor ’64, and writers Fia Alvarez ’07, Mitchell Lichtenstein ’78, and Jonathan Marc Sherman ’90. This was part of a tribute for a scholarship fund in memory of Nicky Martin, a Tony-nominated and Obie Award-winning director and beloved former faculty member.
So far we raised more than $25,000 for the Nicky Martin Memorial Scholarship for Performing Arts at Bennington College, and we will continue to accept gifts via mail and through our online donation form. To see more of the social media coverage on the event, visit the Storyify page.
