Hollywood's Pantages Theatre is the place to be Oct. 22 when Jerry Lewis and the cast of Damn Yankees will perform the musical as a benefit for Broadway Cares / Equity Fights AIDS, followed by a gala rooftop garden celebration at the Wyndham Bel Age Hotel.
Of BC/EFA, Lewis wrote, "Without this organization, many people living with AIDS, and their families, would go without the basic necessities of life. Please show your support by attending this inspiring, once-in-a lifetime extravaganza. PLAY BALL!"
Since its founding in 1987, BC/EFA has raised millions in the fight against AIDS, as well as mobilized the entertainment industry against the disease.
Tickets to the performance and party range from $125 to $500 (the latter includes a pre-theatre cocktail reception and autographed poster by the cast). For tickets and information, please call (212) 840-0770.
