Because the original scheduled performer, Rita Wilson, cannot attend the event due to a family obligation, actress/singer Megan Hilty will perform at the Alliance Theatre’s sixth annual A Tony Evening at the W Hotel – Midtown May 10. The event benefits the Midtown venue’s programs for youth and families.

The 2014 A Tony Evening will honor Victoria and Howard Palefsky for their commitment to and support of the arts in Atlanta, particularly the Alliance and the Woodruff Arts Center, also in Midtown.

Hilty recently starred alongside Sean Hayes in NBC’s comedy “Sean Saves the World.” Prior to that, she portrayed the seasoned triple-threat Ivy Lynn in NBC’s musical drama “Smash” for two seasons. In March 2013, Hilty released her debut solo album, “It Happens All The Time,” which included fresh interpretations of compositions by contemporary songwriters and producers.

Hilty’s performance at this year’s A Tony Evening will follow her concert earlier that night at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre near Vinings. Atlanta singer Francine Reed will open the entertainment portion of A Tony Evening. Sponsorships are still available.
