Sunday night I had the privilege of attending The Actors Fund 22nd Annual Tony Awards Viewing Party at the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles. This year's viewing party honored
Tony-nominated book writer (for "Wicked"!) and Emmy-nominated writer and producer ("My So Called Life", "Roadies") Winnie Holzman with the Julie Harris Award for Artistic Achievement. Winnie’s husband, actor Paul Dooley, gave a beautiful introduction to Winnie, Kirsten Vangsness of the CBS hit drama "Criminal Minds" hosted the night and was fabulous, funny and looking great in a long gown! 


I have been lucky enough to have attended many of these fabulous Actors Fund Tony Awards Viewing Parties. The Actors Fund does wonderful work, providing a safety net for performing arts and entertainment professionals over their lifespan.

The evening featured a performance by recording artist Shoshana Bean (she sang beautifully!) and the Notre Dame Academy Girls Concert Choir They performed "Over the Rainbow"!), with special tributes by Wilson Cruz ("13 Reasons Why", "My So Called Life") and Jessica Marie Garcia (Netflix’s "On My Block"). There were also very special tributes to Anne JeffreysPatricia Morison and Jomarie Ward, who was the heart and soul of the annual Actors Fund Tony Party.
