Tony Award nominee Mary Testa, most recently seen in Off-Broadway’s Queen of the Mist, and Darlene Love, seen in the Hollywood Bowl production of Hairspray, have been added to the lineup of the second annual Broadway Belts! for PFF (Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation) benefit, which is scheduled for Feb. 27 at Birdland.

As previously announced, the 7 PM concert will be hosted by Julie Halston, who recently joined the cast of Roundabout’s Anything Goes.

Directed by Carl Andress, the evening will feature Tony nominee Andrew Rannells (The Book of Mormon), Testa and Love, who will belt out some of Broadway's most memorable songs. Seth Rudetsky will conduct his seminar on the art of Broadway belting. Jesse Kissel is musical director.

Halston is a spokeswoman and activist for Pulmonary Fibrosis ever since her husband (broadcaster Ralph Howard) was diagnosed with the disease in 2008.

All funds will go toward The Michael Kuchwara Fund for Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis Research, Education and Advocacy in honor of the late and beloved Associated Press theatre critic and reporter.

Doors will open at 5 PM with curtain time promptly at 7 PM. Birdland is located at 315 West 44th Street.
