This., [title of show]), Julia Murney (Queen of the Mist/Wicked), Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame legend Darlene Love, and Seth Rudetsky took to the stage at Birdland last night, February 27, for the Second Annual Broadway Belts for Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation Benefit. BroadwayWorld was on hand for the show and brings you photo coverage below!

Hosted by Julie Halston (Anything Goes) Broadway Belts for Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation! was directed by Carl Andress, with music direction by Jesse Kissel. Sirius Satellite Radio host Seth Rudetsky conducted his seminar on the art of Broadway belting. 

All funds go toward The Michael Kuchwara Fund for Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis Research, Education and Advocacy in honor of the late Associated Presstheater critic and reporter. Michael Kuchwara, AP theater reporter and critic for over 25 years, devoted his life to the theater. In May of 2010, following a brief illness, Kuchwara's untimely passing was linked to idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF).

The mission of the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation (PFF) is to help find a cure for idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), advocate for the pulmonary fibrosis community both locally and in Washington, D.C., promote disease awareness, and provide a compassionate environment for patients and their families.
