Broadway Bonanza

The Party
A bevy of Hollywood and Broadway musical greats took the stage at The Beverly Hilton Hotel for the 22nd annual A Night at Sardi’s benefit, themed Broadway’s Best. This year’s lively gala for the Alzheimer’s Association honored country legend Glen Campbell for his brave battle with the disease, and the cast of CBS’s The Big Bang Theory—Mayim Bialik, Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki and others—for their six years of support.

The Scene
Following cocktail hour, hosts Ben Feldman of Mad Men and Sarah Rafferty of Suits graciously addressed the crowd. “The only other pleasure I can imagine is when we no longer have to have this event,” said Rafferty. After an awards presentation and a three-course meal, the entertaining 20-song salute celebrated Wicked, Guys and Dolls and more. John Stamos sang alongside the original How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying star Robert Morse; musician and former Wicked cast member Joey McIntyre broke out a rendition of “Jailhouse Rock”; and crowd favorite Steven Weber channeled Miss Trunchbull from Matilda.

The Highlights
As the Broadway tunes turned to country, Campbell’s children, Ashley and Shannon of musical duo Victoria Ghost, delivered an emotional tribute. “Daddy, don’t you worry. I’ll do the remembering,” they chimed, before the show’s entire cast convened for a finale, ending the night with a (big) bang. –Photos by Invision for Alzheimer’s Association/AP Images
