At the annual gala, over 500 arts enthusiasts gathered virtually in celebration 
of the Berkeley Repertory Theatre, which plans to reopen in the fall. The organization also honored the 20th anniversary of its School of Theatre and garnered $590,000 in support of its programs. Saturday Night Live cast member Chloe Fineman was the host for the evening, and other special guests included Tom Hanks, Raúl Esparza, John Gallagher Jr., the Avett Brothers, and more. Attendees were also given a preview of the nonprofit’s 2021-22 season.
