East West Players announced their signature “one night only” event fundraiser,  which this year was a tribute to Producing Artistic Director Tim Dang and Arts Education Director Marilyn Tokuda honoring the achievements in their last year at East West Players. On June 30, it was announced that Tim Dang would be stepping down as Artistic Director of EWP in June 2016 and Marilyn Tokuda would be retiring at the same time.

“We are taking advantage of every opportunity this year to fundraise during this transitional year for EWP,” says Dang. “We’re celebrating, our 50th Anniversary, celebrating Marilyn’s retirement, my 20+ years at EWP, and welcoming the next chapter of EWP. This is a momentous occasion.”

Guests of the sold out event enjoyed dinner al fresco by chef David Sutton and Simpang Asia in the Aratani Courtyard. The summer evening continued with music and laughter in the David Henry Hwang Theatre, celebrating Producing Artistic Director Tim Dang and Arts Education Director Marilyn Tokuda in their final season on our 50th Anniversary.

Proceeds of One Night Only benefit the artistic and educational programs of East West Players.
