Electra, now in its last weeks on Broadway (to Mar. 21) will give a benefit performance Mar. 14. Money from ticket sales goes to the Actors' Fund of America. Tickets are available at regular box office prices by calling 1-800-FUND TIX ext. 121/133, through Ticketmaster/Tele-Charge and at the theatre's box office.
The nation's "only human service organization for all entertainment professionals," the Actors' Fund of America is best known for providing financial assistance and social services (food, rent, medical expenses) to professionals in need. Given on a night when the show doesn't normally play, an Actors' Fund performance, with all benefits going to the Fund, charges the same box office prices as on other nights and is often well attended by members of the entertainment community.
Zoe Wanamaker stars as the title character in Frank McGuinness' adaptation of the Greek tragedy, playing at the Barrymore Theatre through Mar. 21.
