Three-time Tony Award winner Nathan Lane will join Julie Halston for a special edition of her popular online show “Virtual Halston,” on Wednesday, February 24 at 5pm. The pair delighted fans with their iconic portrayals of socialite Bitsy von Muffling and lounger singer Bobby Fine on HBO’s Sex and the City.
The weekly show is a gabfest packed with laughs, dish, anecdotes, lore, outrageous comic observations about life and how we live it. The show features Halston’s trademark readings from books, press clippings, manuals, wedding announcements and what she describes as “close encounters of the celebrity kind.”
Lane won Tony Awards for The Producers and the revivals of Angels in America and A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. His numerous other Broadway credits include Gary: A Sequel to Titus Andronicus, It’s Only a Play, The Odd Couple, November, The Nance, The Frogs and Guys & Dolls.
During each episode of “Virtual Halston,” donations are encouraged to the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation (PFF), a disease that causes progressive scarring in the lungs. The PFF collaborates with physicians, organizations, patients and caregivers worldwide. For more information visit: www.pulmonaryfibrosis.org.
