Performances with Benefits

07be/1243968844-bitterhoney2.jpgIf you shell out a little extra cash for these special performances tonight (one of which continues tomorrow) you'll be helping support the arts and providing relief for victims of the recent earthquakes in Italy. And, at $25 a pop, they're actually the same price as rush tickets to Broadway shows. At the Cherry Lane Theater, Mario Fratti's new play The Boys of L'Aquila gets a staged reading directed by Valentina Fratti, with proceeds going to the relief effort in Italy's earthquake-affected region ($25-$35, 7pm, tickets at ticketmania.com or 212-352-3101).

Meanwhile the LAByrinth Theater Company presents Eric Bogosian's Bitter Honey II — a series of monologues from the plawright's underperformed and neverperformed works — at the Public Theater tonight and tomorrow night, with all benefits going to keep the company clothed and fed – or at least performing. ($25/$125, June 2, 3 at 7pm, tickets here or at 212-513-1014)
