Photo Coverage: Warren Beatty, Kenny Leon, Chita Rivera and Uma Thurman Honored at The Actors Fund Gala

The Actors Fund bestowed its Medal of Honor upon four artists last night at its annual gala. BroadwayWorld was on hand at the big event, and you can check out photos below!

The dazzling entertainment filled evening celebrated Oscar-winning actor and filmmaker Warren Beatty; Tony-winning director Kenny Leon, represented on Broadway with the revival of Children of a Lesser God; two time Tony winner Chita Rivera; and Oscar nominee Uma Thurman, who made her Broadway debut this season in The Parisian Woman.

"It's fitting that The Actors Fund honors Warren Beatty, Kenny Leon, Chita Rivera and Uma Thurman, four legends of the film, theater and dance worlds," said Brian Stokes Mitchell, Chairman of The Actors Fund, in an earlier statement. "Their artistry represents the best of our industry, and they are individuals who lead with their heart, showing boundless compassion for those in need in our entertainment and performing arts community."

Nicolas King and Seth Sikes have their own individual, respective careers and come from what would seem like different orbits. But, actually, it turns out, maybe not so much, because when they come together as THE NEW BELTERS, a special kind of energy force forms and it’s reminiscent of, say, Martin & Lewis (Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis).
