Actor Liam Neeson was among a plethora of stars who gathered to honour the Redgrave family acting dynasty at the American Theatre Wing's Annual Gala in New York on Monday (24Sep12).

The Taken star attended the event with Vanessa Redgrave and Joely Richardson, the mother and sister of his late wife Natasha Richardson, to pay tribute to the six-generation acting dynasty and its contribution to theatre.

The three were honoured alongside Natasha, who was killed in a skiing accident in 2009, and other late family members Corin Redgrave, Michael Redgrave, Lynn Redgrave and Rachel Kempson.

The event was also attended by stars including actress Jessica Chastain and actor Alan Cumming, who sang Mein Herr from Broadway hit Cabaret in honour of Rodgers and Hammerstein executive director Theodore S. Chapin.

All proceeds from the event went to American Theater Wings' education and outreach programs.
