“We are Godly proud and honored to support the celebration of The Muny’s centennial,” said World Wide Technology Founder and Chairman David Steward. “It is a major community accomplishment that St. Louis has sustained this premier arts institution for 100 years and that on this centennial birthday, we are able to celebrate a rich and diverse history of musical theatre that is available to everyone, right here in St. Louis.”
“We are truly grateful to World Wide Technology and the Steward family for their support,” said Muny President and CEO Denny Reagan. “Gala attendees and the thousands of St. Louisans who will join us for this show are in for a spectacular evening. It will certainly be a fitting kick-off to a season of celebration.”
“This will be a night of real Muny history,” said Muny Artistic Director and Executive Producer Mike Isaacson. “So many extraordinary talents will be joining us, and we’re working to create a show that we hope for the rest of your life, you’ll be able to say ‘I was there.’”
