On March 13, film actress Susan Sarandon is honorary chair of a benefit for SafeSpace, a New York-based program that assists "homeless and street youths." Entertainment for the benefit will include ensemble members of Broadway's Chicago performing that show's opening number, "All That Jazz" (with Donna Marie Asbury doing the Velma role). Actress Sarandon will not be able to attend the event. Directing the show are Bill Torres, Fay Simpson and Tom Pearl.
The Center for Children + Families, which sponsors the SafeSpace program, can be reached at (212) 226-3536. The sixth annual SafeSpace Talent Show will take place at Webster Hall.
