Additional casting has been announced for The Flea Theater's benefit reading of The Parisian Woman, which is scheduled for Oct. 22 at 6 PM at the BMCC Tribeca Performing Arts Center.

The Flea commissioned Academy Award nominee Beau Willimon (Farragut North) to adapt Henry Becque’s La Parisienne. Directed by Joel Schumacher, the reading will star the previously reported Tony winner Ellen Barkin (The Normal Heart, "The New Normal").

Newly announced for the reading are Grace Gummer, Corey Stoll and Treat Williams.

The Parisian Woman, according to press notes, "is now set in contemporary Washington D.C. To what lengths will a woman go to advance the political career of her husband? The Parisian Woman tears the veil off adultery in this modern retelling of the scandalous affairs of a bored and intelligent wife left to her own devices."
