Photo Coverage: Los Angeles Actors' Fund Tony Award Party
The evening also included a live and silent auction, with items ranging from a phone booth from the movie "The Terminal", to a message on your answering machine, recorded by Carol Channing.
The evening was hosted by hysterical Jason Graae, and the silent auction led by Jo Anne Worley. Graae opened the evening with his own special lyrics to 'Getting Married Today' about the LA party, and later Graee and Worley did their own version of the Hugh Jackman / Aretha Franklin duet.
