The 7 PM event, to be held at Guild Hall, will benefit Off-Broadway's Naked Angels. Showtime is 7 PM.

Tony Award-nominated Next Fall playwright and former Naked Angels artistic director Geoffrey Nauffts will direct the music-filled piece.

Quinto, last seen in the Off-Broadway engagement of Angels in America, will play Clifford, opposite Wood reprising his role as Gene in Leight's acclaimed memory play about a young man's recollections of his parents' relationship and his own coming of age.

The presentation will also reunite original Broadway cast members Jeff Binder (Al), Kevin Geer (Jonesy), Michael Mastro (Ziggy) and Angelica Torn (Patsy). Casting for the role of Terry will be announced soon.

Side Man is described as "a tender and poignant memory play about a jazz musician struggling to save both his fading career and troubled home life during the dawn of rock 'n roll in America."

Michael Mayer directed the 1998 Off-Off-Broadway production of Side Man, which later transferred to Broadway and earned the Tony Award for Best Play. The play was also nominated for the Pulitzer Prize. Wood earned a Tony Award for his Broadway debut in the play.

Tickets, ranging $30-$100, may be purchased by phoning (866) 811-4111 or by visiting GuildHall.

Guild Hall is located at 158 Main Street, East Hampton, New York.
