Jeffrey Finn (American Idiot, Oleanna) and Scott Landis (Nice Work If You Can Get It, Glengarry Glen Ross) present the reading of the Simon comedy that has not been seen on Broadway since its 535-performance debut run at the Broadhurst Theatre in 1988.
The play will likely resurface on Broadway this season.
The Sept. 12 reading features Short (Fame Becomes Me), Broderick (The Producers), Martin (Pippin) and White (The Little Dog Laughed) as well as Tony winner Laura Benanti (Gypsy) and five-time Tony nominee Jan Maxwell (Follies).
In Simon's murderous farce, four couples arrive at the 10th anniversary celebration party for New York's deputy mayor and his wife, only to find the mayor wounded in bed and the wife missing.
