Allen, Batt, Graff, Light and “Queer as Folk” Star Gant Take Part in Save Me Reading May 27

News   Allen, Batt, Graff, Light and “Queer as Folk” Star Gant Take Part in Save Me Reading May 27 An all-star cast will comprise the May 27 reading of Save Me to launch Revelation Theater’s “From Screen to Stage” series.

Chad Allen, Bryan Batt, Nora Burns, Mario Cantone, Anderson Gabrych, Robert Gant, Randy Graff, Lisa Kron and Judith Light are all scheduled to take part in the reading of Craig Chester’s comedy. Chester — an indie-film actor — has written a story about a journalist working for a gay publication “who goes undercover to investigate a Christian-based homosexual rehabilitation center in Texas.” Fox Searchlight had held the rights to the Save Me screenplay for several years, but eventually allowed them to expire. The “From Screen to Stage” series is designed to lure screenwriters back to the legitimate stage. Revelation Theater will present works by these screenwriters that were deemed too political or “too hot for Hollywood.”

The May 27 evening begins at 6:30 PM with the Revelation Space Preview Party, which will enable attendees the chance to view the Revelation Theater’s new 155-seat theatre at 334 West 39th Street. The reading will follow at 8 PM at Primary Stages (354 West 45th Street). Tickets, priced between $75 and $250, are available by calling (212) 947-7000.
