Wittrock, Magnussen and Mauzy are joined by Hannah Bos (The Open House), Greg Hildreth (Peter and The Starcatcher) and Preston Sadleir (Next to Normal) in the reading, to be held at the Davenport Theatre. Dave Solomon directs.

According to press notes, the play, by Amsterdam (Fast Girls, Carnival Round the Central Figure), “examines the ramifications of the Vietnam draft from a unique and intimate perspective. When two members of the band pull low numbers, one is forced to choose between an unthinkable dodge and an amoral war. This choice tests his sense of brotherhood, and shatters his idealism – ending the mythic sixties.”

The reading will be presented by Ashley Kate Adams of AKA Studio Productions (“Rules of Cool,” “photo op"). The general manager for the reading is Evan Bernardin, and the stage manager is Melanie T. Morgan.
