Hamlin, who will play the role of director-choreographer Nathan Chernoff, will be joined by his former "LA Law" co-star Alan Rachins, who will play librettist Bernard Bergstrom. The 7:15 PM reading will also feature the talents of Leonard John Crofoot as lyricist Matthew Burns, Chris Winfield as producer Seth Kahn and Gary Holland as Bergstrom's companion, David Porter.

Stan Mazin directs.

Suggested by a true incident, Collaboration: A Play About a Musical, press notes state, "deals with the volatile reunion of four creators of a celebrated, award-winning musical who must debate- on a sunny 1990 August Sunday in a beach house in the Hamptons - the pros and cons of allowing a proposed film remake of their classic work to move forward. During the confrontation, personal and professional matters are revealed, leading to a surprise conclusion."

The reading will be produced by Richard Stevens for Stevens Productions.

Plummer Park Center is located at 7377 Santa Monica Blvd. in West Hollywood. For reservations and other information, contact Richard Stevens at stevensstage323@yahoo.com or call (323) 650-6266.
