Keeping our entertainment chops honed has often returned us to the gala circuit, but with good reason. We’ve had the chance to meet some amazing honorees and create unforgettable nights – hardly a seated chicken dinner.
In early 2017 we were the design and production side of an amazing relationship with the Canadian Centre for Architecture and the Bronfman Family. Dalzell Creative Group developed a relationship that became the 90th Birthday Extravaganza for architecture and design legend Phyllis Lambert. Produced inside ‘The Grill’ which was the yet-unopened renovation of the iconic Four Seasons at 375 Park Avenue, we produced immersive performance by Peter Kiesewalter, live chocolate construction by the Columbia School of Architecture, and stunning production design amid the maiden voyage service with Major Food Group.

For the October 2014 Friends In Deed Honoree Dinner, we created a show with immense heart. NE worked to move the long-running annual to a new location, developed an open floor plan that expanded the audience and created an intimate cocktail environment, as well as created original digital wallpaper and video content to complement the new production design. Scripting and stage management as well as service plan and arrivals management led to a smooth show. Our Stage featured speakers/presenters/honorees that included Andy Cohen, Victor Garber, John Slattery, Marc Shaiman, and Mike Nichols!
