Naughton and Feldshuh Star in the NYC Stage Reading of TESTOSTERONE

May 27
8:50 AM 2011

Two-time Tony Award winner James Naughton (City of Angels, Chicago, Democracy) and four-time Tony Nominee, 4-time Drama Desk Award Winner Tovah Feldshuh (Irena's Vow, Golda's Balcony, Lend Me a Tenor, Yentl) will headline the New York City stage reading of Hal Ackerman's contemporary mortality comedy TESTOSTERONE, Monday June 13, 7 pm, at the Roy Arias Off-Broadway Theater.

Ackerman, who is the Co-Chair of UCLA's Screenwriting Department, won the 2009 William Saroyan Centennial Prize for Drama for TESTOSTERONE and in 2010 the play enjoyed a successful limited West Coast run. The NYC stage reading of TESTOSTERONE will be included as a presentation by Theater Resources Unlimited as one of the winning selections of the 2011 TRU Voices Play Series.

TESTOSTERONE portrays the struggle of a father-and-divorcee (Naughton) making his best strides as a bachelor who finds himself in unfamiliar emotional territory when he's confronted with life-altering news forcing him to re-evaluate priorities including those with his daughter, girlfriend and grandmother (all played by Ms. Feldshuh plus 7 others) while he contemplates the question "what makes a man a man?" Peter Johnson rounds out the cast portraying the additional male characters including an alter ego, best friend and several physicians.
TESTOSTERONE will be directed by Linda Selman (Requiem For A Marriage; Bunner Sisters; Southern Comfort: Roller Coaster Ride of Tallulah Bankhead; Bubbe Meises, Bubbe Stories; From My Lady's Diary: Marie Antoinette) and produced by Me and You Productions in association with Massimine/Roytman/Presentations.
