Route 66 today announced a special Valentine's Day edition of their Route 66 Reading Series. Harmony France joins Artistic Director Stef Tovar for this reading of Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune by Terrence McNally. After the reading Diana Lawrence will perform a solo set.

The setting is a walk-up apartment on Manhattan's West Side where, as the curtain rises, Frankie (a waitress) and Johnny (a short-order cook who works in the same restaurant) are discovered in bed. It is their first encounter, after having met several weeks ago on the job, and Frankie is hopeful that Johnny will now put on his clothes and depart, so she can return to her usual routine of watching TV and eating ice cream. But Johnny, a compulsive talker (and romantic), has other ideas. He is convinced that he loves Frankie, a notion that she, at first, considers to be ridiculous. She has had more disappointments than delights in life, and he is the veteran of one broken marriage already. And neither of them is in the bloom of youth. Yet out of their interplay the promise of a relationship beyond a "one-night stand" does begin to emerge and, as the lights dim, the two are back in bed again, but this time side-by-side, holding hands before the glowing television screen.

The reading will take place upstairs at Mrs. Murphy and Sons Irish Bistro. 3905 N. Lincoln Ave (in Northcenter)

February 14th at 7:30PM
