Directed by Matt August, the reading at the Marjorie S. Deane Little Theater boasts the talents of Michael Stuhlbarg, Austin Pendleton, David Margulies and Christina Kirk. Show time is 4 PM. In The Great Man, press notes state, "the 'Biographer' is selected to write a profile of his literary hero: the reclusive, cantankerous, seventy-something year old 'Great Man,' whose long-awaited new novel is about to be published. He soon discovers that he must contend with several competitors who have similar designs of their own, including the Great Man's young sixth wife, his unscrupulous agent, his best friend/lawyer, his off-stage literary protégé (based on Philip Roth) and others. Twists and turns ensue as the play explores questions about the relationship between life and art; what it takes to be a 'great' writer and a good person; and who can be the rightful heir to greatness."
Marjorie S. Deane Little Theater is located in Manhattan at 5 West 63rd Street. There is a suggested donation of $10.
