Benefit Performance Mar. 3: There’s No Place Like Home! Starring Jenny Lee Stern and Nicholas Saverine
“A special evening, with a one-night-only concert performance from two Broadway performers: Jenny Lee Stern and Nicholas Saverine. The night includes a reception in our Crystal Room, as well as a lively and fun auction, plus an award to one of our most cherished supporters.
The evening is a fundraiser and a celebration for Delaware County’s only professional music theatre. Broadway’s Jenny Lee Stern and Nicholas Saverine headline the concert, performing on the stage that has, over the years, become ‘home’ to them as well as many other performers and patrons.
Jenny Lee Stern is a Bucks County native and Broadway veteran. She was seen on the Great White Way in “Rocky” (Original Broadway Cast) and “A Christmas Story: The Musical” (Madison Square Garden). She toured the country as Mary Delgado in “Jersey Boys”, originating the role in the Chicago and Toronto companies. Off-Broadway, Ms. Stern garnered critical acclaim for her portrayals of Judy Garland, Patti Lupone, Bernadette Peters, Sutton Foster (and more!) in “Forbidden Broadway: Alive and Kicking”.

Ms. Stern has been seen frequently on the cabaret circuit in NYC, performing at Town Hall, Feinstein’s, Birdland, Lincoln Center, and 54 Below, including her solo show “Just A Girl”.

The 7 p.m. event highlights the professional award-winning music theater’s contributions to the cultural landscape of the region and beyond, as patrons and supporters will experience a memorable one-night-only concert, two unique cocktail receptions, an awards ceremony, and a live auction. The entire evening enhances and solidifies the Media Music Theatre Company’s (MMTC) status as the area’s only year-round professional music theater.

Cline and his staff of creative designers, actors, and directors have been awarded more than 20 “Best Of” honors from prestigious media outlets such as the Philadelphia Inquirer, Delaware County Daily Times, Broadway World, the New York Daily News, Main Line Today Magazine and DelcoNewsNetwork.
