VIRTUAL HALSTON, which Ms. Halston created during Covid-19 to provide much-needed laughter in a dark, uncertain time, has indeed, provided respite to thousands of viewers each week since May, with a gallery of guests that have included: Mario Cantone, Charles Busch, Lilli Cooper, Santino Fontana, Max von Essen and Judy Gold.

The hour-long show features Ms. Halston's trademark readings of NY Times wedding announcements, excerpts from celebrity biographies, hilarious and thoughtful observations about the world in which we live.

Donations are suggested, with proceeds going to the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation, which funds research and treatment for people with the disease. Each winter, Julie Halston hosts a star-studded BROADWAY BELTS concert in NYC, which has become the largest annual fundraiser for PFF.
