News   "One Life to Live" and "Law & Order" Stars Set for Free Missives Reading
 
A free reading of Garret Jon Groenveld's Missives will be presented May 16 at the Sage Theatre in Manhattan.

The 7 PM performance will feature the talents of Trevor St. John and Tamara Tunie. St. John currently plays Todd Manning on ABC's "One Life to Live," and Broadway actress Tunie can be seen as Dr. Melinda Warner on NBC's "Law & Order: SVU." Jimmy Bohr will direct the evening. Missives, according to production notes, focuses "on the unlikely friendship formed between a gay white man and a straight African-American woman which is put to the test by an unexpected act of violence. The rich language and imagery runs the gamut from the joy of soap operas to the humor of serial killers, and eventually leads to the question, what is it about mistakes that we can’t forgive?" On Broadway Tamara Tunie has been seen in Julius Caesar; Lena Horne: The Lady and Her Music; Oh, Kay! as well as in the benefit concert of Dreamgirls. Her Off-Broadway credits include Troilus and Cressida and Loose Knit, and her regional credits include Antony and Cleopatra and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. Tunie has been seen on screen in "The Devil's Advocate," "Caveman's Valentine," "City Hall," "Eve's Bayou," "Snake Eyes," "24," "Sex and the City" and "NYPD Blue." She is currently starring on both "Law & Order: SVU" and "As the World Turns."

The Sage Theatre is located on the second floor of 711 Seventh Avenue, between 47th and 48th Streets. Although the reading is free, reservations are required by calling (212) 714-7628.
