Directed by Keen Artistic Director Jonathan Silverstein, the reading will feature Tony nominee Kate Baldwin, Arnie Burton, Andrew Dawson, Ali Ewoldt, Oscar nominee Marsha Mason, Brenda Pressley, Angela Reed, Tony nominee Max von Essen, and Allan K. Washington.
The 1927 comedy concerns the Cavendish family, the most famous theatrical family on Broadway. While matriarch Fanny Cavendish (Mason) plans a farewell tour, her leading lady daughter Julie (Baldwin) must choose between a date and a first rehearsal as her matinee idol brother Tony (von Essen) is on the lam for slugging a Hollywood director. Meanwhile, Fanny’s granddaughter Gwen (Ewoldt) is thinking the unthinkable: chucking the whole thing to marry a stockbroker (Washington).
Proceeds from this event will underwrite Keen Company’s 23rd season.
Tickets, which start at $100, are on sale by visiting KeenCompany.org.
