Directed by Daniel Aukin, the full cast also includes Shane McRae, Kathryn Rossetter, Cotter Smith and New School for Drama MFA actors Brennan Lowery, Kelsey Foltz and Leif Steinert.
Angels Ajar will offer an exclusive preview of brand new full-length work by Jon Robin Baitz (Other Desert CIties, Naked Angels Original Company Member, New School for Drama Faculty), Janine Nabers (New School for Drama MFA '08; 2011 Page 73 Playwriting Fellowship) and Kirit Limperis (a participant from 3Thursdays, Naked Angels' public high school outreach program). Each will present excerpts from their latest works in process.
The event includes a pre-show reception beginning at 6:30 PM, prior to the reading at 7:30 PM.
Proceeds will benefit the professional theatre artists, their new works and the New School students participating within Naked Angels' 2013-14 core programming.
Angels Ajar is one of the first events in the recently announced partnership between Naked Angels and The New School for Drama, which offers New School students the opportunity to train with Naked Angels through its development programs while providing the company with a home — the New School's Bank Street complex — to produce its dramatic works.
You're invited to spend an evening filled with personal tales of difficult choices, bad breaks, worse men and some of the most glorious songs ever written. It's an intimate evening, up close with a legend.
