The Cradle Song, Gregorio Martinez Sierra's tale of a child left at a conventand the extraordinary impact that has on the lives of the nuns, will be presented as a staged reading by The Acting Company at 7 pm tonight, March 9th at the Pearl Theater, 555 West 42nd Street (10th - 11thAvenues).

"The Cradle Song has been translated into many languages and performed worldwide but not seen on Broadway since Eva Le Gallienne directed it in 1927," said Margot Harley, Producer of The Acting Company. "The playwright was a pioneer of 20th Century Theater in Spain, translating and producing works of Shakespeare, Shaw and Pirandello as well as commissioning Federico Garcia Lorca to write plays and engaging Salvador Dali to design sets for his theater."
