Greg Keller, Jessica Love, Arian Moayed and Cassie Paras to Lead Ars Nova's FRIEND ART Reading, 2/14
Ars Nova presents, as part of the Out Loud series, a FREE reading of FRIEND ART by Sofia Alvarez, directed by Portia Krieger. The cast includes Greg Keller, Jessica Love, Arian Moayed and Cassie Paras.
There's a lot of art in New York City: the good, the bad and the ugly. Molly came to New York with dreams of acting, but now works in a law firm. Lil is a young performance artist who makes solo shows in basement theaters. Kevin curates art for corporations, while Nate was a semi-famous alt-rocker, but now mostly just snorts cocaine. Four friends juggling life in the city come face to face with what it means to support the art your friends make, regardless of what it does to your friendship.
Sofia Alvarez's plays include Between Us Chickens, Life Drawing, The Fish Bowl, Nylon and Friend Art. She is a member of the Ars Nova Play Group, New George's JAM and Primary Stages' Dorothy Strelsin New American Writer's Group. She is currently a staff writer for USA's Sirens. Education: Bennington, Juilliard.
Portia Krieger's recent directing credits include Eager to Lose (Ars Nova), Baby Screams Miracle (Clubbed Thumb), The Place We Built (Strasberg). Upcoming: The Vaults at New Georges. Portia is an alumna of the Drama League Directors Project and the Lincoln Center Theater Directors Lab, a former Ars Nova Director-in-Residence, and a co-founder of the New Georges Jam.
FRIEND ART will be read on Friday, February 14 at 3:00pm in the Ars Nova Loft. The OUT LOUD Series is FREE and open to the public. Reservations are required. Ars Nova is located at 511 West 54th Street. For more information and to reserve tickets, please visit www.arsnovanyc.com.
