On four successive Monday evenings beginning March 23, CSC will offer staged readings of works inspired by Proust's classic, "giving audiences a unique guided tour through one of the 20th century's greatest novels."
Audiences may absorb each reading as an independent evening or experience them together as a cycle.
Here's The Proust Project's schedule:
April 13, a reprise of Swann In Love, directed by Brian Kulick will feature Michael Stuhlbarg as Swann. All readings will be followed by a post-performance symposium with a Proust scholar, and audiences "will be given a free Madeleine cookie to inspire their memory."
Tickets are extremely limited. For tickets and more information, visit www.classicstage.org, call (866) 811-4111, or (212) 352-3101, or visit the CSC box office at 136 East 13th Street, Monday through Friday noon to 6 PM.
Now in its 41st season, Classic Stage Company is the award-winning Off-Broadway theatre committed to re-imagining the classical repertory for a contemporary American audience. Led by artistic director Brian Kulick and executive director Jessica R. Jenen, the company recently concluded their critically acclaimed sold out run of Anton Chekhov's Uncle Vanya, starring Maggie Gyllenhaal, Denis O'Hare and Peter Sarsgaard, directed by Austin Pendleton, as well as recent productions of Chekhov's The Seagull, starring Dianne Wiest and Alan Cumming, the world premiere of David Ives' New Jerusalem, directed by Walter Bobbie, and The Tempest starring Mandy Patinkin.
