A Tribute to Tony Bennett in Words and Music: Featuring Eddie Bruce and David Evanier
Mon, Apr 09 2012, 2:30 pm - Mon, Apr 09 2012, 5:00 pm
Suzanne Roberts Theatre
480 S. Broad Street
Philadelphia, PA 19102

The Center for Literacy invites you to an evening not to be missed: a special benefit performance by Philadelphia’s celebrated singer/bandleader Eddie Bruce in a program devoted to the music and life of the legendary Tony Bennett! Joining him for this one night only presentation will be the Tom Adams Trio along with David Evanier, author of the Bennett biography, All the Things You Are, and well-known jazz deejay, Bob Perkins of WRTI-FM who will embellish the music with their anecdotes about Bennett’s life.

The gala performance will be held at the Suzanne Roberts Theatre, in association with the Philadelphia Theatre Company, on Monday, April 9, 2012 at 7:30 pm. General admission tickets are $50 each, and patron tickets are $150 each. Patron tickets include premium seating, an autographed copy of David Evanier’s Tony Bennett biography and Eddie’s CD “Bruce on Bennett,” as well as a meet-the-performers dessert reception following the show.

Eddie selected the Center for Literacy (CFL) as beneficiary of this premiere event because of his support for the work of the nation’s largest—and Pennsylvania’s first—nonprofit community literacy provider. Cut-backs in government funding due to the current state revenue shortfall have seriously impacted CFL’s budget, making this benefit particularly important in raising money to carry out our vital work.

Please join us in battling the literacy crisis in Philadelphia by purchasing your tickets TODAY! Sponsorships are also available. Please contact Kathy Meck at or 215.474.1235 ext. 231. is proud to be a sponsor of this event!
