Peter Friedman, Sarah Steele and More Set for Reading of Lisa Lewis' Schooled
27 Nov 2012
Tony Award nominee Peter Friedman, Sarah Steele, Harry Zittel and Zoë Winters will take part in a reading of the new Lisa Lewis play Schooled, which will be presented Dec. 3 in Manhattan.
Ken Davenport (Godspell, Altar Boyz, Somewhere in Time) presents the 8 PM reading that will be staged by Jules Ochoa at the Davenport Studios.
Here's how it's billed: "Schooled explores the widening chasm between privilege, economic class and the opportunities for success. Two students vie for a competitive grant from their roguish professor in a taut threesome that tests their romantic relationship and their ethics. A biting drama with surprising humor, Schooled is an examination of the lies we tell ourselves, and the truths we refuse to believe."
Friedman is a Tony Award nominee for Ragtime. He also appeared Off-Broadway in Circle Mirror Transformation. Steele was part of Slowgirl at LCT3, while Zittel appeared in LCT3's All American, and Winters was seen in the acclaimed LCT production of 4000 Miles.
Deaf West’s production of SPRING AWAKENING floored the critics when it premiered in California, prompting the Los Angeles Times to write, "It's hard to enumerate all the ways in which Deaf West's SPRING AWAKENING is so very, very good." Now this unapologetically brilliant new production is coming to New York.
