PHOTOS: Chris Lowell, Denis O’Hare, Robert Redford Celebrate Sundance in NYC

Robert Redford hosted a high-end benefit for the Sundance Institute on Monday and Queerty was there . The evening started with a private performance of Denis O’Hare (True Blood) and Lisa Peterson’s An Illiad at New York Theatre Workshop, followed by cocktails on the terrace of The Bowery Hotel. Guests included Ruben Santiago-Hudson (Lackawana Blues), Montego Glover (Memphis), Christine Ebersole (Grey Gardens), Doug Wright (I Am My Own Wife), Julie Taymor, The Help‘s Chris Lowell (above) and Beau Bridges.

In addition to shepherding filmmakers, the Sundance Institute has worked with emerging stage talents in its Theatre Program. Beneficiaries have included projects by out playwrights like Tony Kushner’s Angels in America, Doug Wright’s I Am My Own Wife, Moises Kaufman’s The Laramie Project and Craig Lucas’ The Light in the Piazza.

    Does anyone know who the guys is in photo 1?

    Chris Lowell from THE HELP. He was also in VERONICA MARS, Season 3.

  • Godiva

    And he was also in Private Practice as Dell the secretary. I’m a little ashamed of knowing that, that show is admittedly terrible…

  • Aric

    Loved him in The Help

  • The Real Mike in Asheville

    FYI: Sundance also has a mini-movie festival at BAM — the Brooklyn Academy of Music where you can see many of the hits from the annual Sundance Film Festival. We used to go when we lived in Brooklyn and enjoyed many a show.
