The reading at the Players Club in Manhattan will feature the talents of Reed Birney, Jordan Coughtry, Sue Cremin, David Furr, Cady Huffman, Simon Jones, Andrea Marcovicci, Emily Skinner, Steven Skybell, Robert Stanton, Lindsay Torrey and Lenny Wolpe. Michael Musto of the Village Voice will narrate, and Jesse Green of New York Magazine will host the evening. Show time is 7 PM.

David Staller, the acclaimed singer-actor who has produced and directed all of the Project Shaw offerings, will continue to do so for the upcoming reading.

Getting Married, press notes state, is a "provocative comedy of creative couplings in a Bishop’s kitchen. It's a wedding day, but second thoughts are flying through the air. Lesbia is determined to live without a man, but wants to have a child. Hotchkiss has broken up a marriage, but is it the husband or wife he's interested in? All converge to forge a partnership agreement between consenting adults to try and circumvent the traditional marriage contract. And then the mysterious Mrs. George arrives to throw everyone off balance."

Past participants include Blair Brown, Mark Kudisch, Kerry Butler, Tyne Daly, Jonathan Hadary, Daniel Jenkins, Rebecca Luker, Michael Cerveris, Karen Ziemba, Michele Pawk, Bruce Vilanch, Jack Gilpin and George S. Irving.

The Players Club is located in Manhattan at 16 Gramercy Park South. Tickets, priced $25, will be available beginning June 1 by calling (212) 352-3101. For more information visit
