Hecht's many Broadway and Off-Broadway credits include Julius Caesar, After the Fall, Lobster Alice and Stop Kiss. The evening at the Promenade Theatre will also feature the talents of Chris Sarandon and Trudie Styler. Emily Bergl has left the outing. Peter DuBois, the producing director of the Public Theater, will direct the 6:30 PM trilogy of one-acts.

Playwright Walsh-Smith, author of Bonkers, penned Addictions after the suicide of her youngest brother Kevin, who was a long-time alcohol addict. According to press notes, it is Walsh-Smith's hope "that this play might help other suffering addicts."

The Promenade Theatre is located at 2162 Broadway at 76th Street. Tickets, priced $350, are available by calling (212) 371-3220, ext. 6152.
