Bea Arthur and Billy Goldenberg add a special performance of Bea Arthur on Broadway: Just Between Friends for the Actor's Fund of America 8 PM March 17 at the Booth Theatre.
Audience-favorite Arthur, known for TV's "Maude" and "The Golden Girls," and Broadway's Mame, is a surprise holdover this spring. Her show of songs and anecdotes was intended as a limited engagement in February and March, but when a later booking at the Booth fell through, strong ticket sales encouraged Arthur and composer-pianist Goldenberg to extend indefinitely.
Tickets for the benefit range $51.25-$66.25. To purchase tickets, call (212) 221-7300 ext. 133, (212) 239-6200, or visit The Booth Theatre box office. For more information, visit actorsfund.org.
