"These are the places we convene and collaborate, grow and transform. They are where we lift each other up, and where we make room for new voices and new perspectives. For many, these unique spaces are where we build our chosen families. In more ways than one, these cherished places are our homes. From that first magical moment I walked into an empty theater at age 4, I've been chasing this one dream: To create an inspired home for my artistic family, and build a platform for the next generation."

Tony Award nominee Tom Hewitt will play his final performance in the role on Sunday, November 26.



Todrick Hall is a singer, songwriter, dancer, actor, choreographer, playwright, costume designer, “American Idol” finalist, star of his own MTV show and viral YouTube sensation (2.7M subscribers, 400M views). Hall recently released his first visual album, Straight Outta Oz, which debuted as the #2 pop album. Broadway: The Color Purple, Memphis, Kinky Boots. Hall has opened “The Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards”; been a judge on “RuPaul’s Drag Race” and “Gay for Play”; choreographed videos for BeyoncĂ©; written and starred in the Virgin America safety video, Fiat commercials and the theme song for the new online version of “Sesame Street.” Upcoming: Behind the Curtain: Todrick Hall.



Chicago also currently stars Tony Award nominee Charlotte d’Amboise as Roxie Hart, Olivier Award Winner & Original Cast Member Leigh Zimmerman as Velma Kelly, Raymond Bokhour as Amos Hart, NaTasha Yvette Williams as Matron “Mama” Morton (LaVon Fisher-Wilson returns to the role of “Mama” on Monday, November 20) and R. Lowe as Mary Sunshine.



With a legendary book by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse, music by John Kander and lyrics by Fred Ebb, Chicago is now the #1 longest-running American musical in Broadway history.



Produced by Barry and Fran Weissler, Chicago is the winner of six 1997 Tony Awards including Best Musical Revival and the Grammy Award for Best Musical Cast Recording.

Set amidst the razzle-dazzle decadence of the 1920s, Chicago is the story of Roxie Hart, a housewife and nightclub dancer who murders her on-the-side lover after he threatens to walk out on her. Desperate to avoid conviction, she dupes the public, the media and her rival cellmate, Velma Kelly, by hiring Chicago’s slickest criminal lawyer to transform her malicious crime into a barrage of sensational headlines, the likes of which might just as easily be ripped from today's tabloids.

New York’s First Lady of Philanthropy Jean Shafiroff Featured in HOLA! and HELLO! Magazine UK
****

Jean Shafiroff


Philanthropist Jean Shafiroff is featured in the November, 2017 issue of Hello Magazine UK, with Duchess Kate Middleton on the cover. The 9-page feature has also been released with a total of 10 pages in the Spanish sister publication to Hello Magazine, HOLA! which was published in Spain, Mexico and Argentina and features Victoria and Cristina Iglesias, daughters of Julio Iglesias, on the cover. HOLA! dubbed Jean “The First Lady of Philanthropy in the United States and included a feature on Queen Letizia of Spain. Jean’s features were first in both HOLA! as well as HELLO! UK.



The profile highlights Jean’s passion for philanthropy, the importance of giving back, and how to inspire others to make the world a better place, as well as a few in depth tips on serving as the perfect event hostess. The spread features gorgeous photography of Ms. Shafiroff’s Upper East Side home and extensive art collection, as well as sharing few of her favorite designer pieces.



In the interview, Ms. Shafiroff tells Hello about her desire to instill in her children a passion for philanthropy and good deeds. “It’s crucial to teach children that they have to do their best to help others and make this world a better place,” she tells the publication. Ms. Shafiroff also discusses the drive behind her need to give back and how she inspires others to use their own resources to make the world a better place. “At the Catholic school that I attended, the nuns always taught us the importance of helping others and taught us to be compassionate and generous.” says Ms. Shafiroff. “I dedicate most of my social life to philanthropy, going to charity events, meeting people and organizing fundraisers. And I feel very fortunate to be able to do so.”



Ms. Shafiroff, who sits on the board of eight charitable organizations, including the New York Women’s Foundation, New York Mission Society, and the Jewish Board of Family and Children’s Services, is also an Ambassador for the American Humane Society and hosts many charity events and fundraising galas each year. She is the author of Successful Philanthropy: How to Make a Life By What You Give (Hatherleigh press), in which she shares her expertise with others who seek to give back to those in need. Mrs. Shafiroff has conducted many interviews and television and radio appearances discussing the importance of philanthropy.



Mrs. Shafiroff talks about her own parent’s influence on her desire to do good by others. Shafiroff has since made sure to inspire her own children Elizabeth and Jacklyn with the same message. Elizabeth, her younger daughter, has co-founded Global Strays, an organization dedicated to obtaining grants for organizations focused on animal welfare in developing countries.



“The most important thing is to teach children the importance of caring for those who have less or who might need help,” says Mrs. Shafiroff. “You have to foster and promote empathy and solidarity.”
