The casts of GREY’S ANATOMY and its hit spin-off PRIVATE PRACTICE are set to
come together for a live singing performance later this month (Feb08).
The shows’ actors will take to the stage at UCLA’s Royce Hall in Los Angeles
on 29 February (08) for Good Medicine, a fundraiser benefiting production crew
affected by the recent writers strike.
Series creator Shonda Rhimes writes on the blog Grey’s Writers: “For one
night only, the casts of Grey’s Anatomy and Private Practice are coming
together for a live performance! An unforgettable evening of laughter and song
to benefit crew members who were affected by the strike.
“Because while the strike is over, it will be months before many crew members
are back to work. Millions of dollars in income were lost. Many crew members
are suffering. And we want to do anything we can to help out.”
The event comes just after the Writers Guild of America (WGA) members voted
to end a three-month strike over Internet royalties – which has crippled the
American TV and movie industry – earlier this week (begs11Feb08).
