Directed by Greg Cicchino with musical direction by Craig M. Nehamen, the reading will be presented at 3 PM. The cast comprises James Alexander, J. Cameron Barnett, Chad Carstarphen, Malik Hammond, Jenè Hernandez, Chauncy Johnson, Alano Miller, Jen Ryan, Leonard Sullivan and DeWanda Wisen.
Wrapped features book, music and lyrics by Craig M. Nehamen and Dennis A. Nehamen. The show, according to press notes, is described as "a hip-hop musical that carries you into the soul of a struggling man: one part artist, three parts husband and father. Broken by the cold-hearted music industry and left hopeless in satisfying any of his wishes for his family, Benny crafts an unthinkably noble plan that unfortunately never stands a chance at success. When all goes awry, he's left fighting hard with a spirit twice as inspired to try to put things back together for himself and his family."
The reading will be presented at the York's home at The Theatre at Saint Peter's on 54th Street, east of Lexington Avenue. Although the reading is free, reservations are required by calling (212) 935-5824, ext. 24.
