The 7 PM reading benefits The Acting Company.
"Anyone who appreciates great theater and superb acting will love this valentine to the theater as two of America's finest actors perform the words of one of the world's great playwrights," said Margot Harley, producing artistic director of The Acting Company, in a previous statement. "Anton Chekhov was a writer known the world over for The Seagull, Uncle Vanya, The Three Sisters and The Cherry Orchard. But Chekhov's most beautiful love story is the one that he lived-with Olga Knipper, leading lady of the Moscow Art Theatre."
The Kaye Playhouse is located at East 68th Street, between Park and Lexington Avenues.
