News   Jay Tarses Exposes Man in His Underwear, in Reading at Florida Stage Feb. 24 Florida Stage, devoted to new works, presents a reading of Man in His Underwear, a new play by Jay Tarses, the Emmy Award-winning creator of TV's "The Days and Nights of Molly Dodd," 7 PM Feb. 24.

The reading, directed by Florida Stage's literary manager, Desmond Gallant, is part of the company's New Voices series. The play is billed as "a funny and poignant new work about marital fidelity and commitment." Tickets are $7. Some of the New Voices scripts end up on the Florida Stage mainstage season, a spokesperson told Playbill On-Line, adding that the reading series "is one of our best tools to make mainstage determinations."

Now in its 11th season, the New Voices play-reading series consists of informal professional readings of new and developmental plays. The audience is given the opportunity to discuss the work with the actors, director and, often, the playwright. Some of the playwrights who have been heard in the series include William Mastrosimone, Lee Blessing and Nilo Cruz.
