Theatre Now New York will host the first meeting of 2014 of the RAW Reading series on Sunday, March 9, 2014. The reading will begin at 3:00 pm in the Mitchell Room on the third floor of 520 Eighth Avenue.

The reading in March will be of "Topeka is Turning or The Ryan Seacrest Play" by Stephen Bishop Seely. This new comedy is the story of two friends who get into quite a predicament after an "American Idol" audition that goes terribly wrong in Topeka, Kansas. "Topeka is Turning or The Ryan Seacrest Play" is about enduring friendships, challenging circumstances, and a comedic repartee back and forth. The question remains at the end: does Ryan Seacrest survive this ride from hell?

Scripts presented at the RAW Readings series can be at any point in the developmental process. It is a chance for both Theatre Now and the audience to hear new works presented in a spontaneous and unplanned way. Participation by the audience is an integral part of the process, which serves as an important step in the evolution of new plays or musicals. The raw readings also allow Theatre Now to assess whether or not they wish to move forward in the development of a particular play or musical.

Theatre Now New York is a professional theatre company whose history originates with two established companies - the Genesius Theatre Guild in New York City and ReVision Theatre in Asbury Park, NJ. Theatre Now New York brings together the founding principles of both these companies; developmental work and main stage theatrical productions. The mission of Theatre Now New York is to facilitate the creation and development of new theatrical works, the reimagining of previously produced known titles and the reinterpretation of classic works through readings, productions, workshops and work-in-progress presentations and to promote the understanding and appreciation of live theatre and its process by the general public and provides opportunities for emerging, mid-career and established theatre professional in their ongoing creative process. In keeping with this mission, Sound Bites' goal is to seek out and cultivate new writers and composers and develop new musicals.
