While what happens onstage is the essence of theatre, theatre people do lots of interesting things offstage as well. Every week, I will bring you news of non-show theatre events around the U.S. -- exclusively on Playbill On-Line. To send information for this column, eMail releases to Katia_Lundy@playbill.com . There will be a Mini Health Fair for the Entertainment community on Thursday, November 21 from 12 noon to 5 p.m. at Aurora (the new Actor's Fund residence), 475 West 57th Street @ 10th Avenue in New York City.
Entertainment professionals are encouraged to attend. Testing for blood pressure, cholesterol and health risk assessment as well as skin cancer will be conducted. The actors fund will also coordinate scholarships for breast cancer detection.
