According to press notes, "With a book by Tony Award winner Jerome Chodorov and a score by Stan Freeman & Jack Lawrence, this vibrant, colorful confection follows the delightfully eccentric denizens of Coney Island and the feisty fortune-teller who singlehandedly sets off a series of raucous romantic entanglements."

The reading features Olivier Award winner Lesli Margherita ( Matilda, Zorro), Danny Rutigliano ( Born Yesterday), Steve Luker ( 42nd Street), Liz Pearce ( Billy Elliot), Natalie Venetia Belcon ( Matilda, Avenue Q) and Emmy Award winner Bruce Vilanch ( Hairspray, “Hollywood Squares”).

The reading is free and takes place at Bruno Walter Auditorium at The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts (111 Amsterdam Ave).
