The benefit will be held at the Rockwell Hall Performing Arts Center in Buffalo. Baldwin will be joined onstage by Brian Mysliwy and Kelly Jakiel. Scott Behrend directs the 8 PM performance. "Speed-the-Plow focuses on two high-powered Hollywood executives, Charlie Fox and Bobby Gould, who have come up from the mailroom together," according to press notes. "Charlie brings Bobbie a surefire hit with a major star attached. Bobby seems certain to give the green light, until his beautiful new secretary gets involved."

A revival of Speed-the-Plow recently ended its limited engagement at Broadway's Ethel Barrymore Theatre.

Baldwin was most recently on Broadway in Twentieth Century. His other Broadway credits include A Streetcar Named Desire (Tony nomination), Serious Money and Loot (Theatre World Award).
