Stephan Morrow directs the one-night-only reading, which is set to begin at 7 PM. Betsy von Furstenberg and Larry Block are scheduled to be part of the cast. Challenging, poetic and thick with images, Camino Real (1953) mixes literary and cultural types — Casanova, Don Quixote, Byron, Shelley, Kilroy — in Williams' strange world of Mexican plazas and hotels at the edge of the world, a place he said was pronounced "caminno reel."
