News   David Cromer Directs Starry Performance for Arts in the Armed Forces Nov. 8
 
Arts in the Armed Forces presents a free, star-studded evening of monologues and jazz to service men and women and their families Nov. 8 at 8 PM at Roundabout Theatre Company's American Airlines Theatre.

Directed by David Cromer, participants include Eric Bogosian, Susan Sarandon, Dianne Wiest, Reg E. Cathey, John Patrick Shanley, Lauren Ambrose, Jay O. Sanders, Francois Battiste, Saidah Ekulona and the John Batiste Jazz Trio.

The evening consists of a scene and several monologues from modern plays interspersed with jazz.

The material, according to press notes, was selected "with an eye to what might speak to this particular audience, without being exclusively war-themed or focused."

One of AITAF's main interests lies in "erasing the distinctions of what makes one person a soldier and another an artist by exposing two seemingly different communities to the same stories in the hopes that their individual responses will lead to inspired dialogue."
