Christian Borle, America Ferrera, Celia Keenan-Bolger and More Set for Tumacho Benefit Reading
By Adam Hetrick
Tony Award winner Christian Borle, Tony nominees Celia Keenan-Bolger, Kristine Nielsen, Richard Kind, John Ellison Conlee and Golden Globe Award winner America Ferrera will be part of a Dec. 16 benefit presentation of Ethan Lipton's Tumacho.
Presented as a benefit for the Obie Award-winning Clubbed Thumb theatre company, Tumacho will be directed by Tony Award winner Pam MacKinnon (Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, Dinner With Friends). Tumacho will be presented at Classic Stage Company's 13th Street Theatre.
The 7:30 PM reading will feature Borle (Peter and the Starcatcher), Keenan-Bolger (The Glass Menagerie), Nielsen (Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike), Kind (The Big Knife), Conlee (The Full Monty) and Ferrera ("Ugly Betty").
Here's how it's billed: "In a small frontier town in the Old West, the people are dropping like flies at the hands of Big Bill Yardley. But when Tumacho rolls back into town, all the rules will change."
Lipton's works include the acclaimed No Place to Go as well as Red-Handed Otter and Luther.
