The Best Man

Join us for The Actors Fund Special Performance of The Best Man



One of the finest Broadway casts ever assembled now brings one of the most entertaining political dramas ever written to new life at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre.

Does THE BEST MAN always get to the White House?

Gore Vidal's THE BEST MAN is about the race to the presidency, as two front-runners vie for their party's nomination in the midst of backstabbing, double-crossing, dirty-dealing and all the games politicians play. It's a roller coaster ride of twists and turns which make for the most entertaining and fun night in the theatre this season!

Two-time Tony Award® and Academy Award® winner James Earl Jones and five-time Tony Award® winner Angela Lansbury head the cast in Gore Vidal's THE BEST MAN. The acclaimed company also includes Tony® and Emmy® winner John Larroquette, Emmy® and Golden Globe® winner Candice Bergen, Emmy® winner Eric McCormack, Tony® nominee Kerry Butler, Tony® winner Jefferson Mays and Academy Award® nominee Michael McKean.

Actors Fund Special Performances have been thrilling audiences for more than 80 years with an electric energy unlike any other night of theatre! What makes a Special Performance so "special"? Each year, Broadway companies, in New York and on the road, generously give their time and talent by adding a performance to already rigorous schedules to benefit The Actors Fund.
