Daniel Craig, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Linda Emond and Mike Nichols have joined the lineup for the Public Theater’s “Courage in Concert” benefit, Oct. 19 in the Newman Theater.

They will perform songs and poems written by Tony Kushner and composer Jeanine Tesori for the production, with proceeds going to American Jewish World Service and Partners in Health.
