26 Oct 2013
Lorna Luft, Liza Minnelli, Norm Lewis, Brian Stokes Mitchell Celebrate Lorna's Pink Party
As National Breast Cancer Awareness Month rolled around, breast cancer survivor Lorna Luft wanted to give back, so she teamed with the Actors Fund for their 2013 edition of Nothing Like a Dame. Titled Lorna's Pink Party, the Oct. 14th concert (and its Oct. 21 encore) benefitted the Phyllis Newman Women’s Health Initiative and the Dr. Philomena McAndrew Fund of Tower Cancer Research Foundation. Guests included Luft's legendary sister Liza Minnelli as well as Norm Lewis, Liz Callaway, Ann Hampton Callaway, Brian Stokes Mitchell, Jim Caruso, Nick Adams, Marcia Strassman, Phyllis Newman and Kelly King.

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.
