The reading of SSA (Ass Backwards) will be presented at 11:30 PM at the intimate cabaret located within Joe’s Pub. The cast for the one-night-only event — presented by Jamie McGonnigal — will include Ryan Watkinson, Ryan Nealy, Jason Michael Snow and Danny Binstock. SSA (Ass Backwards) features a score by Nick Blaemire and a book by James Gardiner. The musical, according to press notes, tells the story of “four best friends who return to their old high school football field a year after they've graduated, and try to pick up where they left off. What begins as a night of reminiscing and pranks quickly turns into an emotional journey that tests the limits of their friendship, and their willingness to admit that they've changed.”

Joe’s Pub is located within the Public Theater at 425 Lafayette Avenue. Tickets, priced $20, are available by calling (212) 539-8778. Visit www.joespub.com for more information.
