The Wooster Group celebrated their spring benefit dinner on Tuesday, April 29th at 632 on Hudson (632 Hudson Street), New York City. The benefit’s hosts were Steve Buscemi, Buck Henry, Frances McDormand, Mike Nichols, Lorne Michaels, and Maura Tierney. Karen Lashinsky’s magical event space hosted cocktails and entertainment which began at 6:00 pm. Maura Tierney had benefit guests laughing as she pretended to interview Buck Henry using an old TV interview then she edited some of his most memorable TV and film clips into the parody.
