Acting for a Cause is a live read series of classic plays and screenplays created, produced, directed and hosted by Brando Crawford:
Acting for a Cause started March 2020, just as the pandemic was announced and is both a campaign to raise money, awareness, and to provide free entertainment to our viewers.
We have partnered Entertainment Industry Foundation to support causes we have researched thoroughly and need our help- through their emergency fund the EIF issues a grant with the total amount pledged from each reading to the corresponding non-profit.

The May 15th live reading was no other than a Jane Eyre production, adapted by Christine Calvit with a quite impressive cast:

Natalia Dyer (Stranger Things) is Jane Eyre
Alexander Hodge (Insecure) is Mr. Rochester
Sophia Lillis ( I Am Not Okay with This / Sharp Objects) is Helen
Richard Ellis   ( I Am Not Okay with This) is St. John
Elle Lorraine (Insecure) is Mrs. Fairfax
Sydney Lemmon (Succession / Fear the Walking Dead) is Bertha
Rudy Pankow (Outer Banks) is Brocklehurst
Jessica Frances Dukes (Ozark / Jessica Jones) is Mrs. Reed

Director, Exec Producer and Master of Ceremonies: Brando Crawford
