The presentation is part of the Public Theater's Drama Club series, curated by Jeremy McCarter. It will take place at 7 PM at Joe's Pub.
The cast includes O'Hare ("American Horror Story", Take Me Out) as The Angel, with previously announced journalist Maddow as Actor 1 and Marvel (Top Girls, Picnic) as Laura Bush.
According to the Public, "In Kushner's provocative 2003 play, First Lady Laura Bush reads a passage from Dostoyevsky to Iraqi children who were killed in American air strikes. Afterwards, Kushner and the cast will discuss the morality of U.S. foreign policy and the extent to which we share responsibility for our leaders' actions."
The Public Forum was created to offer "theatre of ideas: conversations and performances with leading voices in politics, media, and the arts." In Drama Club, "authors, musicians, journalists, scholars, and actors will come together to give onstage readings of one-act plays that have some special resonance in our lives today. Each reading will conclude with a discussion of the hard questions that the play raises about our politics, our culture, and the way we live now."
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.
So pull up a chair and order up a drink. Because she's got a life to sing. Tickets as low as $85!
