Said Neil Pepe, artistic director of Atlantic, in an earlier statement: “As theatres across the city labor to sustain live performance in a post-pandemic era, we are thrilled to bring together our closest friends to celebrate Atlantic’s 38-year history. Jeff, Mary, and I are especially honored to recognize Roger Kass for his exceptional board leadership, generosity, and unwavering commitment to our work for the past 35 years. We are grateful to him, the full board, our staff, and the most talented artists in the industry who represent the many voices that work tirelessly to tell the stories of the times in which we live.”
