The first evening, set for June 26 at 11:30 PM, will feature the talents of Sarah Saltzberg (The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee), Steve Rosen (Monty Python's Spamalot) and David Rossmer (Fiddler on the Roof). A revolving cast from such additional shows as Sweeney Todd, Avenue Q, The Producers, Rent and Altar Boyz will take part in the July 27 and Aug. 31 performances. Don't Quit Your Night Job is described as an evening of "improv, music, original sketch comedy and backstage anecdotes." Dan Lipton will be the musical director for all shows.

The performances will benefit the late Wendy Wasserstein's Open Doors program, a theatre arts mentoring program for high school students that was founded in 1998.

Joe's Pub is located within the Public Theater at 425 Lafayette Avenue. Tickets, priced at $15, are available by calling (212) 539-8778.
