The one-night-only event will benefit the West Coast Ensemble and Actors' Fund of America and will be held in the Magnin Auditorium of the Skirball Cultural Center in West Los Angeles. Show time is 8 PM. Daly, a Tony Award winner for her performance in the 1989 revival of Gypsy, will read Temple Bailey's classic story, "A Candle in the Forest." Graae, who has appeared in Falsettos and Ragtime, will offer excerpts from his one-man show, and poet-singer Rod McKuen will offer several selections from his repertoire.
One of the oldest non-profit theatre companies in L.A., West Coast Ensemble is a multi-ethnic company of actors, writers and directors. The company provides development programs for original works, a Director's Lab and Playwright's Unit as well as a Families-At-Play program.
