Directed by Charles Abbott, the 3 PM reading stars Michele Ragusa (Young Frankenstein, Ragtime, Titanic) as Lidia Fiorelli, "a Long Island vinter's wife, who is grappling with a full-throttle, mid-life meltdown," according to press notes. She is joined by Tony Lawson (White Christmas) as her husband Benno, Sy Adamowsky (Caroline, or Change) and John-Charles Kelly (A Light in the Piazza) with Michael Deleget, Maya Darron, Emily Loewus and Daniel H. Luttman. The Family Fiorelli and How They Stayed One features book and lyrics by Fred Anthony Marco and music by Alastair William King.
The reading will be presented at the York's home at The Theatre at Saint Peter's on 54th Street, east of Lexington Avenue. Although the reading is free, reservations are required by calling (212) 935-5824, ext. 24.
