BWW Previews: Actors Fund Benefit Of THE YEAR OF MAGICAL THINKING Starring Linda Purl Available Online Through August 2nd Only

Broadway World Cabaret has learned that cabaret/concert star and enduring American actress Linda Purl has joined forces with North Coast Rep in a fundraising effort directed toward The Actors Fund.

In 2018 Ms. Purl appeared at North Coast Rep in the one-woman play THE YEAR OF MAGICAL THINKING. Based on Joan Didion's National Book Award winning memoir of the same title, a play that debuted on Broadway in 2007 with Vanessa Redgrave in the lead. For the purpose of this benefit, Ms. Purl filmed her acclaimed tour-de-force performance in her home, and this week it has been streaming with all monies raised being donated to The Actors Fund, an organization that is helping many industry professionals to survive during the work lockdown caused by the current global health crisis. The streaming event began on Wednesday night and will continue through Sunday August 2nd - it is available 24 hours a day and, once purchased, can be watched at any time, even after August 2nd, when the show will no longer be available for purchase. Once the purchase has been started the viewer has 48 hours to finish watching the show. Interested audiences have the rest of the weekend to take advantage of this remarkable opportunity to see one of the industry's most beloved actress in an important and impressive performance, while also raising funds for an organization that has meant so much to so many.
