The free reading boasts the talents of Kevin Neal Bernard as Ralphy, Natalie Toro as Frida Kahlo, John Herrera as Diego Rivera and Tamra Hayden as Wendy with Jonathan Atkinson, Jonathan Brody, Jackie Colmer, Natalie Cortez, Henry Gainza, Satomi Hoffman, Nancy Johnston, Peter Marinos, Brian Norris, Katie O'Shaughnessey, Katie Sina and James Van Treuren. Show time is 7:30 PM. Finding Frida Kahlo features music by Tom Polum, lyrics by Greg Cullen and a book by Polum and Cullen. The musical, according to the York, is described as such: "On vacation in Mexico City, Ralphy and Wendy, an American couple, are attempting to save their failing marriage. Along the way they are haunted by the meddlesome but well-meaning ghosts of Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, who try to teach them how to have a happier marriage. Heavily relying upon a sense of magic realism, this black comedy explores the meaning of life and love albeit with several missteps along the way."
