About the Actors Fund:
Actors Fund Special Performances have been thrilling audiences for more than 80 years with an electric energy unlike any other night of theatre! What makes a Special Performance so "special"? Each year, Broadway companies, in New York and on the road, generously give their time and talent by adding a performance to already rigorous schedules to benefit The Actors Fund. The Actors Fund, a nonprofit human services organization founded in 1882, serves all professionals - and not just actors! - in film, theater, television, music, opera, and dance through programs that address their unique and essential needs.source: broadwayworld.com
