Peter Filichia: Will you please attend a (free) reading of a play I’VE written called PRONT AND ADAM? It’s a different kind of Christmas Carol, and it stars Jim Brochu, Matthew Gumley, Stacie Lents, David Schmittou and Maureen Silliman, under John Wooten’s direction.
One night only: Wednesday, Jan. 25 at SEVEN p.m. at St. Luke’s, 308 West 46th Street. I’d LOVE to have you see it and tell ME what’s good and bad. (I can’t stand a critic who can’t be criticized!)
Explicit: No
Music:
The Gershwins’ PORGY AND BESS – “Bess, You Is My Woman Now” – Audra McDonald and Norm Lewis
The Gershwins’ PORGY AND BESS – “I Got Plenty of Nothing” – Norm Lewis
