Several cast members from the Off-Broadway staging of Charles Busch’s The Tribute Artist reunite for a virtual run of the work beginning September 30.
The digital reading stars Busch, Julie Halston, Mary Bacon, Keira Keeley, and Jonathan Walker reprising their roles, with Carole Monferdini joining the cast (as assembled by casting director Stephanie Klapper). Carl Andress directs and narrates the presentation.
The comedy follows an out-of-work female impersonator who, when his elderly landlady dies in her sleep, takes on her identity in order to hang on to her valuable Greenwich Village townhouse.
Written for Primary Stages, the play premiered at 59E59 Street Theatre in January 2014; the two companies now co-present this digital production. Performances are scheduled through October 4. For tickets, visit 59E59.org.
