The new work will be directed by David Bennett for a one-night reading at the midtown venue, April 19 at 7:30 PM.

Ebersole won her Tony for her turn the revival of 42nd Street. The actress has also appeared on stage in Dinner at Eight, Gore Vidal's The Best Man, Getting Away With Murder, Harrigan 'n Hart, Camelot, Oklahoma! and On the Twentieth Century.

Jordan, who has played the recurring character Beverley Leslie on "Will & Grace," will co-star with Ebersole. The diminutive actor has also appeared on "Boston Public," "Judging Amy," "Tracey Ullman in the Trailer Tales" and "Sordid Lives."

The Revelation Theater inaugurated its new Off-Broadway theatre space with a benefit reading of One Arm in October 2003. The company (founded in 2001) launched its first production, David Wiltse's Temporary Help, in November 2002. The staging directed by artistic director Leslie L. Smith starred Robert Cuccioli (Jekyll & Hyde) and Margaret Colin (A Day in the Death of Joe Egg).

The advisory board includes actors Chad Allen, Kathleen Chalfant, Julie Halston, Lisa Kron, Austin Pendleton, Anthony Rapp; directors Jeff Calhoun and Ken Elliot; playwrights William M. Hoffman and Del Shores; and dramaturg Morgan Jenness.

Endangered Species will play at 334 West 39th Street (between Eighth and Ninth Avenue). For more information, call (212) 662-9573 or visit www.revelationtheater.org.
