Less warrior princess and more screen siren, Lucy Lawless looks smokin’ hot! The Kiwi star walked down the runway in the name of charity at a New York Fashion Week event. The 48-year-old’s red gown was part of a colllection being shown by the American Heart Association in an effort to raise awareness of women’s heart health. Juliette Lewis (43) joined the models and Katie Holmes (38) was the host.

 

 

Watch Lucy at the Event

 

Lucy attended the Go Red for Women event which seeks to highlight the dangers of heart disease in women. Heart disease kills more women than breast cancer – that’s a sobering thought isn’t it?

Go Red For Women official site is located here: https://www.goredforwomen.org/

Go Red For Women encourages awareness of the issue of women and heart disease, and also action to save more lives. The movement harnesses the energy, passion and power women have to band together and collectively wipe out heart disease. It challenges them to know their risk for heart disease and take action to reduce their personal risk. It also gives them the tools they need to lead a heart healthy life.

Pop-up Globe is the home of great things. Great battles, great spectacles, great love affairs, great comedy, great costumes and GREAT IDEAS.

Today at the world’s first full-scale temporary working replica of Shakespeare’s theatre, the second Globe, we’re delighted to reveal one more great thing.

In association with Actors Equity, we proudly announce a special one-time-only event The Actors’ Benevolent Fund Afternoon Gala at 4pm on Sunday, 2 April, featuring a stellar line-up of New Zealand entertainers including Dave Dobbyn, Lucy Lawless, Shona Laing, Jennifer Ward-Lealand and many others.

The Pop-up Globe company has gifted the venue to Actors’ Equity and all profits will go direct to the Actors Benevolent Fund – a not-for profit charity established in 2013 to provide assistance to professional performers who, due to injury, illness or disability are unable to work, either temporarily or in some cases for the rest of their lives.

The special 90-minute show, MCd by comedian Michele A’Court, will be in the format of a variety gala and feature our own royal family of entertainers. From Music and dance to poetry and comedy, this event will have something for everyone.

A highlight will see Music Hall of Famer Shona Laing sing her chart topper (I’m Glad) I’m Not a Kennedy for the very first time with the backing of a live strings section. The 1985 hit reached number two in NZ, and number 14 in the US rock charts – one of the most successful singles by a Kiwi artist ever.

A further highlight of the gala will be Xena: Warrior Princess Lucy Lawless singing The Hollies hit He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother.

Confirmed artists and acts appearing during this performance are: Michele A’Court, Dave Dobbyn, Lucy Lawless, the Jubilation Choir, Shona Laing, Dynamotion, Stephen Lovatt, Jennifer Ward-Lealand, James Roque, Jesse Griffin, Tandi Wright, Fiona Samuel and The Black Quartet.

Pop-up Globe artistic director Dr Miles Gregory says he’s very proud to be supporting New Zealand actors through an initiative instigated by the theatre’s musical director Paul McLaney.

“Pop-up Globe is a theatre that puts actors and their relationship with our audience at the heart of our work. Yet away from the glamour and the cheers of the crowd, actors need our support even more,” says Dr Gregory. “I’m very proud that we are hosting this marvellous event, and it’s the perfect way for us all to support the wider acting community by enjoying an afternoon with some of NZ’s finest performers in a very special setting.”

The Benevolent Fund – administered by the Fundraising Committee and Board – provides financial and practical assistance to those in need. Medical expenses may be directly met by the fund, pharmaceutical bills settled, or essential items purchased. In some cases, there may also be provision available for the care of children or family dependants of those performers in need.

Veteran actor Sam Neill, a patron of the fund, has thrown his weight behind the gala event.

“The performing arts can be immensely rewarding, and often just as cruel,” he says. “Inevitably there are many casualties when sadly, later in life, many actors are left in poverty and distress…

“In this fragile industry the Actors’ Benevolent Fund is a way to redress the balance and give back to those in need. The generosity of performers is legendary – very often they donate their skills and work for free. This is a mark of us growing up as an industry: performers looking after performers.”

Equity NZ president and performer Ward-Lealand says the New Zealand Actors’ Benevolent Fund was established to provide a support base for actors of all ages and stages who, due to injury, illness or disability, are unable to do their work – offering discreet and confidential support when it’s needed most.

“Actors’ Benevolent Funds are commonplace overseas and we are proud to be standing alongside these time-honoured institutions, many of which have been around for decades.

“Actors live precarious existences and there are many factors that add to the challenges of the profession. Your attendance at our Gala Afternoon – and enjoyment of some of the best of New Zealand’s performing arts community – will help us to build this fund and give back to the profession that gives so much to audiences around the country. We look forward to seeing you there!”

This is a one-time-only event so tickets are strictly limited and will sell-out quickly.
