1. Special benefit performance added for Daniel Craig's A Steady Rain

    By Devin Zydel on 2009-11-18

    At the request of Daniel Craig and Hugh Jackman, A Steady Rain will add one additional performance on the final day of their limited engagement, Sunday, December 6th at 7pm, to benefit New Yorkers For Children and the NYCPBA Widows & Children’s Fund.

    All proceeds generated by this additional performance at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre (236 West 45th Street) will benefit these two wonderful local charities. This is the final opportunity to see one of the most celebrated theatrical events of the season. This acclaimed, record-breaking play has been virtually sold out since the beginning of its limited 14-week run.

    A Steady Rain tells the story of two cops who are lifelong friends and their differing accounts of a few harrowing days that changed their lives forever.
