Jonathan Groff, Stephen Spinella and Tovah Feldshuh Will Take Part in Red Bull Theater's Revelation Readings Series
By Carey Purcell
Red Bull Theater will present Vladimir Nabokov's The Tragedy of Mr. Morn and Alexander Ostrovsky's Too Clever By Half as part of its Revelation Readings series.
Described as "a dazzling verse romance by the precocious 24-year old author, responding to Revolution with a bloody tale of desire," The Tragedy of Mr. Morn will be read Dec. 9. Translated by Thomas Karshan and Anastasia Tolstoy and directed by Ethan McSweeny, the reading will feature Tala Ashe, Quincy Tyler Bernstine, Corey Hawkins, Aaron Clifton Moten, David Greenspan and Tony Plana. The event will include a post-play discussion with Thomas Karshan.
Translated by Rodney Ackland, Too Clever By Half will be read Dec. 16. "An anarchic, side-splitting satire about a smooth-talking opportunist and his ruthless climb to the top," the play's reading will be directed by Tony nominee Daniel Sullivan and feature Marylouise Burke, Tony nominee Jonathan Groff (Spring Awakening), two-time Tony winner Stephen Spinella (Angels in America) and Tony nominee Tovah Feldshuh (Golda's Balcony).
The season will also include Arden of Faversham, Crimes of Passion, The Country Wife and The Alcestiad.
