Scheduled to perform is Tony winner Karen Ziemba, recently of Broadway's Never Gonna Dance, as well as Bayne Gibby and The Civilians troupe themselves, which includes Colleen Werthman (Light Raise the Roof at New York Theatre Workshop), Quincy Tyler and Jennifer R. Morris (Matt & Ben). The benefit will also include unpublished material from playwrights John Guare and Charles L. Mee. The event will be held at, of all places, The Grand Harmony Restaurant ballroom at 98 Mott Street in Chinatown (how's that for Off-Off-Broadway?). Start time is 8 PM. Tickets are $60 (including drinks and appetizers) and $20 for the afterparty (with dancing and music by DJ Kozmik). Consult www.thecivilians.org or call (212) 613-0033.
