The Actors Fund
Dear Actors Fund Friends,
We rarely get to peek behind the curtain at how Broadway shows
develop, which is why we're so excited to share a special
streaming event of the 2018 industry workshop of the revival of The
Secret Garden. This virtual presentation, which benefits both our
programs and services and the Dramatists Guild Foundation, offers
show-only tickets as well as VIP ticket packages that include pre-show
events with the show's creators, Marsha Norman and Lucy Simon,
as well as a post-show Q&A with director Warren Carlyle. We hope
you'll join us for this special experience of spirit and charm.
We have many other wonderful digital events and creative projects to
share with you; thank you for being a part of our dedicated community
supporting a life in the arts.
