Linda Lavin sings at pulmonary fibrosis benefit
NEW YORK (AP) - Tony Award winners Linda Lavin and Debbie Gravitte teamed up to sing "You've Got Possibilities" and "Mr. Monotony" during the third annual concert to benefit the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation.
The event Monday at Birdland Jazz Club also featured Emily Bergl, Robert Creighton, Max von Essen, Klea Blackhurst, Emma Hunton and Edward Watts. Actress Julie Halston served as host.
The event raised almost $70,000, which will benefit the foundation's The Michael Kuchwara Fund for Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis Research, Education and Advocacy. Kuchwara was The Associated Press' longtime theater critic who died in 2010 from complications due to idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis.
Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis is a lung disease that causes scarring and affects between 132,000-200,000 people in the United States.
