Actors Fund Special Performances, according to press notes, "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."
