The Actors' Fund of America has chosen the 1978 musical The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas for presentation as this year's fall benefit concert, to be held at 7:30pm on Monday, October 16 at the August Wilson Theatre. Seth Rudetsky will be the show's artistic producer and musical director, as he has been for all of the organization's previous concert performances of Broadway musicals. No casting has yet been announced.
Whorehouse has a book by Larry L. King and Peter Masterston and a score by Carol Hall. The original Broadway production, directed by Tommy Tune and starring Carlin Glynn and Henderson Forsythe, ran for nearly 1,600 performances.
Other upcoming Actors' Fund events include the organization's annual New York gala on May 8, which will honor producer Rocco Landesman; a Tony Awards party in Los Angeles on June 11, at which Liza Minnelli will receive the 2006 Julie Harris Lifetime Achievement Award; and a staged reading of Charles Busch's Die! Mommie! Die! on June 19 at the Hudson Theatre.
