Emmy winner and Tony nominee Edie Falco, Broadway alums Michael McKean and Peter Scolari, and more stars from The New Group's world premiere staging of The True by Sharr White reunite July 16 for a virtual reading of the political drama.
Joining the trio are original cast members Austin Cauldwell, Glenn Fitzgerald, John Pankow, and Tracy Shayne. Scott Elliott returns as director.
Falco (The Sopranos, Nurse Jackie) stars as Dorothea "Polly” Noonan, the blunt, profane, decades-long defender of Albany’s Democratic Party. The True is billed as an intimate portrait of the bounds of love, loyalty, and female power in the male-dominated world of 1977 patronage politics.
