The evening, scheduled to begin at 7 PM, will feature a theatrical "bake off" with playwrights Robert Askins, Max Posner and Heidi Schreck, who will be given suggestions from the audience to create a new play. Christopher Abbott, who was seen in the 2011 revival of The House of Blue Leaves, will be among the actors who will present the new work.
Composer-lyricist Matt Schatz will also premiere three commissioned new songs at the benefit, which will be performed by Tony Award winner Cady Huffman (The Producers) and Rebecca Naomi Jones (Passing Strange, American Idiot).
Proceeds from the spring benefit support Page 73's development programs.
