ENGLEWOOD, N.J. -- Ground was broken Monday on a $25 million project to rebuild and expand the Lillian Booth Actors Home in Englewood.
The Actors Fund is looking to raise $10 million toward the new assisted living and skilled nursing facility for professional entertainers and performing artists.
The new structure will replace the current 56-year-old building off W. Hudson Avenue with more than 25,000 more square feet of space -- increasing to 169 the number of residents it can house (from 124).
Among the attendees: Tony and GRAMMY winner Billy Porter, Actors’ Equity Association President Kate Shindle, Actors Fund Chairman Brian Stokes Mitchell and Actors Fund President Joe Benincasa.jerry
