Matschullat's contemporary revision of Alfred de Musset's On ne badine pas avec l'amour interpolates Abelard, Heloise, instant messaging, and the power elite, according to the Red Bull website.
The reading will feature Jeanine Seralles, Geraint Wyn Davies, Mary Bacon, Michael Izquierdo, Mike Crane, Adam Green and Keiko Green under the direction of Lear deBessonet.
Red Bull's Obie-winning Revelation Reading series concludes Jan. 21 with Tony Award winner Roger Rees and Heidi Armbruster in James Shirley's The Cardinal. Carl Forsman directs Rees and Armbruster in the Elizabethan drama, which "explores corruption in the church through a wonderfully tangled web of deceit, plots, love affairs, poison and death."
