by BWW News Desk - Jun 10, 2013

Tonight, June 10th, 2013 at 7pm, Terri Conn (As the World Turns), Anthony Rapp (RENT) and Patrick James Lynch (Stop The Bleeding!) will lead a benefit reading of 'Deleted Scenes' at The Mainstage Theater, 416 W 42nd Street. Proceeds from the benefit will go to the Hemophilia Association of New York.Lynch, a severe hemophiliac, and his company organized the event in an effort to raise not only money for hemophilia, but also awareness of the disorder. Said Lynch, 'It's an excellent opportunity to bring together two communities that may otherwise not find each other.' Lynch lost a sibling to complications from hemophilia in 2007 and has since worked to better integrate outreach & advocacy with entertainment. 'Deleted Scenes' observes two ex-friends forced to reunite to record the director's commentary track for their hit indie film five years after the film's release. Josh (Lynch) is now a star and writer/director Brian (Rapp) is floundering. When Brian's ex Madison (Conn) shows up unexpectedly, tensions rise and old rivalries spill over into the studio.
