WET's Love Benefit Celebrates Expressive Women

by HANNAH LAWRENCE · April 20, 2010

The Angel Orensanz Foundation hosted the Women's Expressive Theater (WET) Love Benefit last night, and Zachary Quinto, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Ron Livingston and Rosemary Dewitt showed their support for women by doing...what else? Acting!

Each year, WET honors a collection of women who work to change the way the world perceives women, and the way women perceive themselves (hence the "love" theme) by putting on several plays, and then throwing an insanely lit (no, not that kind of "4/20" kind of lit) party. This year, Nora Ephron presented the "We Empower Together Award" to Lynda Obst, who produced "Sleepless in Seattle" and "The Invention of Lying."

But since you're dying to know about the space in which this fantastically feminine event took place, I'll tell you. The Ansche Chesed Synagogue is on 172 Norfolk Street, and dates back to the 19th century. Home to the Angel Orensanz Foundation, it houses a large collection of Angel Orensanz's visual art, publishes a quarterly magazine, educates its community about various forms of artistry, and, we can see, looks glorious in any light. Lucky duck.
