A host of Broadway favorites take part in the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation’s 14th annual Broadway Belts for PFF! concert March 18 at Sony Hall in New York City. The evening will also be live-streamed.

Led by Tony-honored actor Julie Halston (Tootsie, Gypsy), the evening features the talents of Liz Callaway (Baby, Miss Saigon), Robert Creighton (Frozen, Cagney), Jose Llana (Here Lies Love, The King and I), Leslie Rodriguez Kritzer (Spamalot, Beetlejuice), Casey Likes (Back to the Future, Almost Famous), Jasmine Amy Rogers (BOOP! The Musical, Mean Girls), and Raena White (Some Like It Hot, Chicago).

Carl Andress directs the fundraiser with musical direction by Christopher McGovern.

Attendees will enjoy a pre-cocktail reception, three-course seated dinner, show, and after party as well as the presentation of the 2024 Ralph Howard Legacy Award to the Hales Family Foundation. The award is named for Halston's late husband, who was diagnosed with PF in 2008, subsequently passing away in 2018. Late New York business executive Thomas Hales was diagnosed with PF in 2007 and became a passionate supporter of the PF community for more than a decade.

“The Broadway community is deeply committed to raising their voices in support of people with pulmonary fibrosis, a devastating illness and growing threat to lung health,” said Halston in an earlier statement. “We invite everyone to join us for this remarkable event—an unparalleled performance and a meaningful opportunity to contribute to a vital cause.”

Broadway Belts for PFF! is the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation’s single-largest fundraiser and has raised over $3 million to drive PF research and to support those living with the disease, which causes irreversible scarring in the lungs. Fifty-thousand new cases are diagnosed each year.

D. Michael Dvorchak, Sue Frost, and Halston produce the benefit.

Doors open at 5:30 PM with dinner at 6:30 PM and the show at 8 PM.

The virtual experience is complimentary but requires reservations. Tickets for the in-person event and live stream are available at
