Presented by Algonquin Productions, the reading will also feature the talents of Sherry Shrinker, Jed Dickson and Jim Ligon. Skin Deep, according to press notes, concerns "a large, lovable, lonely-heart who gets more romance than she bargained for, when she agrees to a blind-date finagled by her well-married, cosmetically-enhanced sister."

Her Off-Broadway credits include Othello, Two Gentlemen of Verona, The Most Fabulous Story Ever Told, Shanghai Moon, June Moon and Durang, Durang.
