The reading is the latest presentation of the Plays in the House spinoff series, which continues every Saturday and Wednesday at 2 PM until Broadway reopens. Director-writer Peter Flynn serves as the online reading coordinator for Plays in the House. The stream will be available for limited viewing following the live stream through July 4.

Money raised during the stream will go to The Actors Fund. Since March 16, Stars in the House has promoted support for The Actors Fund and its services in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

New shows—streaming Monday–Saturday at 8 PM ET with afternoon shows Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday at 2 PM—feature performances by stars of stage and screen, in conversation and song with Rudetsky and Wesley. Click here to watch previous episodes.

The 8 PM stream July 1 will feature Actors Fund President and CEO Joseph Benincasa, Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS Executive Director Tom Viola, Tony-winning choreographer Christopher Gattelli (Newsies), and actor Vasthy Mompoint (The Prom).
