James Earl Jones, Matthew Broderick, Mercedes Ruehl and More to Read ARE YOU NOW OR HAVE YOU EVER BEEN? at Guild Hall

Guild Hall will host a concert reading of Eric Bentley's ARE YOU NOW OR HAVE YOU EVER BEEN?, featuring James Earl Jones, Matthew Broderick, Bill Camp, Richard Kind, Peter Riegert, Mercedes Ruehl, Barry Scheck, and Harris Yulin, on Saturday, September 9 at 8 p.m. Directed by Harris Yulin.

A riveting drama about the infamous 1950s House Unamerican Activities Committee where those in entertainment were subpoenaed to testify as to their loyalty as Americans and asked to name anyone who was, or suspected of being, a communist. Assembled directly from the transcripts of the hearings, the play uses actual words spoken by Lionel Stander, Abe Burrows, Lillian Hellman, Larry Parks, Elia Kazan, Jerome Robbins, and Jose Ferrer. Equally revealing are the questions asked by the committee members.

From $30/$28 Members - $50/$48 Members. The performance will take place at The John Drew Theater in the Dina Merrill Pavilion at Guild Hall, 158 Main Street, East Hampton, New York 11937. Call 631.324.4050 or visit GuildHall.org for more information.
