Countdown to Nothin' Like A Dame

There's under 14 days until "Nothing Like a Dame"- a charity performance featuring incredible actresses including Jennifer Ehle and Rosemary Harris. Remember, it's March 6th at 8:00pm!

This is what Broadway Cares has to say about the production:

Nothing Like a Dame is an annual star-studded gala performance and event featuring women from stage, film, and the performing arts. Net proceeds from this one night only event benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS and are earmarked to support the Phyllis Newman Women’s Health Initiative of the Actors’ Fund of America. “Nothing Like a Dame” is the title lyric of a song from the legendary 1949 Rodgers & Hammerstein musical South Pacific.

The Women’s Health Initiative addresses health issues that impact women in the entertainment industry and provides them with health-related services. Inspired by actor/director Phyllis Newman, a breast cancer survivor, The Women’s Health Initiative was launched in 1996 with the leadership of Broadway Cares. The Initiative provides comprehensive case management services, caring for women with a wide array of health-related concerns, including breast, ovarian, and other cancers; domestic violence; anorexia and bulimia; HIV and AIDS; menopause; substance abuse; Lupus; depression; mental health issues; chronic fatigue syndrome; and osteoporosis.

The national Initiative promotes healthy living and increased understanding of preventive health measures. The Women’s Health Initiative provides: access to Actors’ Fund’s services, programs and financial assistance; referrals to an extensive network of community-based and medical resources; a women’s resource center; vouchers for free mammograms; health fair participation; and a targeted public outreach campaign.
