Katie Thompson and Bill Connington Set for Reading of Private Lives

An invitation-only reading of Noel Coward's Private Lives will be presented Feb. 12 in Manhattan.

The reading will feature the talents of Katie Thompson (Giant) and Bill Connington ("Zombie") as well as rising cabaret star Jennifer Sheehan and Broadway’s Brian Charles Rooney.

"Glamorous, rich and reckless, Amanda and Elyot have been divorced from each other for five years," according to previous production notes. "Now both are honeymooning with their new spouses in the South of France. When, by chance, they meet again across adjoining hotel balconies, their insatiable feelings for each other are immediately rekindled. They hurl themselves headlong into love and lust without a care for scandal, new partners or memories of what drove them apart in the first place… for a little while, anyway."

The evening is produced by Razors Edge Productions.
