The show, which began April 7, will repeat every Monday night. The performances will feature a rotating cast. The text for the evening will span many generations, ranging from the words of the ancient Greeks to such present day playwrights as Eric Bogosian (Talk Radio) and Tony Kushner (Angels in America).
