The reading will be followed by a reception with the cast and director, Janet Zarish, Head of Acting, Graduate Acting Program at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts.

"Holiday is Philip Barry’s delightful tale of an unhappy heiress who falls in love with her stodgy sister's freethinking fiancé. Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant made it memorable on film but it also has had three New York stage runs in 1928, 1973 and 1995 (Laura Linney and Tony Goldwyn last starred)," said Margot Harley, producer of The Acting Company, in a statement.

Mainstage Theater at Playwrights Horizons is located at 416 West 42nd Street. Tickets, priced $35 and $60 (Patron), are available by calling (212) 258-3111.
