A one-night only benefit concert reading of Kiss Me, Kate by Sam and Bella Spewack with music and lyrics by Cole Porter, starring Kelli O'Hara and Will Chase.
In Cole Porter's sparkling 1948 musical, the warring lovers of The Taming of the Shrew are causing trouble both onstage and off. While putting on a musical version of Shakespeare's play, exes Fred Graham and Lili Vanessi can't decide if they're enraged, enamored, or enormously confused whenever they cross paths out of character.
Throw in some mistaken identity, a pair of surprisingly eloquent gangsters, and a whole lot of romantic entanglements, and what you get is Kiss Me, Kate -- a dazzling classic that earned the first-ever Tony award for Best Musical.
Also stars Robert Fairchild, Heléne Yorke, Chuck Cooper, Richard Kind, Norm Lewis, and John Pankow.
Nora and Delia Ephron's Love, Loss, and What I Wore is an assortment of stories based on Ilene Beckerman's autobiography and recollections of the Ephrons and their friends. It was all the rage when it debuted, going on to bag the 2010 Drama Desk Award for Unique Theatrical Experience. Not only that — the show stayed in style, running for three years off-Broadway and catching on internationally. Now 92Y and Daryl Roth have reunited a stunning cast to fashion a one-night reading out of this funny and touching piece.
Public Forum's holiday tradition returns, with a brand new cast! Thornton Wilder's beautiful play takes place over one hundred years of Christmas dinners with the Bayard family, where they see triumph & heartbreak, birth & death, and a changing world – while some things, like family and tradition, remain constant. The cast will also feature the return of Wilder's nephew & literary executor, Tappan Wilder.
Red Bull Theater's OBIE Award-winning Revelation Readings present staged readings of new and rarely performed classic plays from all eras and cultures.
