Actor’s Express, which declared itself in a “true life or death moment” in February when it launched a $200,000 drive to erase accumulated debt, will celebrate its survival and the launch of its 24th season with a bash on Sunday.
Having raised $162,000 from 600 individuals and two foundations, the troupe is throwing a private party for supporters, board members, actors and staff.

The West Midtown company opens its 2011-12 season with “Spring Awakening” on Aug. 25.
