PHOTO CALL: The Actors' Fund's 125th Anniversary Gala
02 May 2007
The Actors' Fund held its annual gala celebration on April 30, which New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg declared Actors' Fund Day in honor of the Fund's 125th anniversary.
Unlike in years past, when the annual gathering was held to honor a single individual, this year's party was held to celebrate The Actors' Fund itself.
The stars came out in droves to celebrate an organization that helps those in need who share their profession and their passion.

Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
