The Flea Theater will present a reading of Hamish Linklater's The Vandal April 3 at The Museum of Jewish Heritage.



The reading will feature the talents of Golden Globe winners Sigourney Weaver and Alan Rickman and Outer Critics Circle nominee Noah Robbins. Flea artistic director Jim Simpson will direct.

The Vandal, according to press notes, is "set on a frozen night in Kingston, New York, where a woman (Weaver) who's lost everything tags her name on Death's door."

Linklater, currently starring in Broadway’s Seminar, said in a statement that “the play is about how we live and the stories we tell ourselves when we’re haunted by the people we’ve loved and lost.”

All proceeds from this event will go to The Flea Theater, now entering its 17th year.

Tickets are $275 and include a light dinner with the cast. To RSVP to the 2012 Benefit Reading, call (212) 226-0051, ext. 102 or email SarahW@TheFlea.org.
