The Actors Fund announced Aug. 9 that the Special Benefit Performance of The Book of Mormon, winner of nine Tony Awards including Best Musical, will be held Sept. 13 at 2 PM.



All proceeds from the performance, an addition to the show’s schedule, will go to The Actors Fund. The company of the hit musical is donating its time and talent to raise funds for the entertainment charity.

The Book of Mormon plays the Eugene O’Neill Theatre, 230 West 49th Street.

Special Performances, according to the Fund, are "among the most thrilling theatrical experiences and the hottest tickets in town. Broadway companies generously give their time and talent by adding these special shows to their already rigorous schedules, and perform for audiences full of their peers from the entertainment community."
