Friends of singer-actress Carly Jibson gather Aug. 26 at the Laurie Beechman Theatre to raise their voices in song for an evening benefiting Jibson's mother, who is suffering from stage-four lung and bone cancer.

The 7 PM concert, which is titled Cancer's Expensive, boasts Eden Espinosa, Chad Kimball, Leonard Sullivan, Caissie Levy, Katie Thompson, Jenna Leigh Green, Nick Adams, Scott Alan, Ellyn Marie Marsh, Brian Gallagher, David Reiser, Michael Mendez and the cast of Off-Broadway's Fat Camp.

Jibson hosts the evening, which features musical direction by Joshua Kartes.

Renee Zimmerman is 55 and has no health insurance. The evening will help to raise funds for her health care.



In addition to the performances, an auction is being held featuring personalized memorabilia from Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman, Michael McKean and Annete O’Toole, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Bruce Vilanch, Joan Rivers, Ricky Lake, the Public Theater, the cast of Book of Mormon and Perez Hilton.
