On Thursday, June 21, Tony Award nominee Norm Lewis participated in the first of a new series of celebrity luncheons to benefit The Actors Fund at Sardi's Restaurant.

The program was originally slated to feature Lewis and five-time Tony Award winner Audra McDonald, who co-star in The Gershwins' Porgy & Bess. However, McDonald is currently on complete vocal rest due to a respiratory illness. She is scheduled to return to the production on July 3.

The discussion explored a range of subjects along with behind-the-scenes stories and anecdotes.
