The two-time Tony nominee’s Pulitzer-winning work How I Learned to Drive played a 2022 Broadway revival with members of the show’s original cast—ncluding Mary-Louise Parker and David Morse—from its 1997 Off-Broadway premiere. Vogel's other stage credits include Indecent, The Long Christmas Ride Home, The Mineola Twins, The Baltimore Waltz, Hot’n’Throbbing, Desdemona, And Baby Makes Seven, The Oldest Profession, and A Civil War Christmas.

The event will mark the foundation’s 60th anniversary, celebrating six decades of supporting theatremakers through financial resources and educational programming.
