The stars were presented with awards for their philanthropy during the event at New York's Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre in aid of the Only Make Believe charity, which aims to bring theatre to chronically sick and disabled children.

The star-studded gala was hosted by former Law & Order: Special Victims Unit actor Christopher Meloni and featured special performances by Broadway actors and singers including Matthew Broderick, Norm Lewis, Ashley Brown and Derrick Baskin.

The charity was established in 1999 by Dena Hammerstein, daughter-in-law of Broadway legend Oscar Hammerstein.
