Jeremy Renner Joins Star-Studded OUR TOWN Benefit Reading to Aid in Puerto Rico's Recovery Efforts
The John Gore Organization announced today that two-time Academy Award nominee Jeremy Renner and Maximiliano Hernández will join their Avengers: Infinity War co-stars in the special benefit reading of Thornton Wilder's classic play Our Town at Atlanta's iconic Fox Theatre on Monday, November 6. Tickets are now on-sale.
The evening, directed by Tony winner Kenny Leon and organized by Ms. Johansson, will include additional surprise appearances by celebrities and friends. All proceeds from the one-night-only event will be donated to support the relief efforts in the wake of the devastation left by Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico.
Tickets to this exclusive one-night only event are currently on sale and can be purchased online at FoxTheatre.org/OurTown, by phone at 855-285-8499, or in person at the Fox Theatre Box Office. Tickets start at $89. Additionally, there will be a limited number of VIP packages, which include premium seating in the orchestra pit or on stage, a post-performance meet-and-greet opportunity, a commemorative lanyard, and a signed poster available starting at $1000.
Set in the idyllic village of Grover's Corners, New Hampshire, Our Town is a glimpse into the American experience of small town life that captures the universal experience of being alive, falling in love, and facing death. Its 1938 original production earned a Pulitzer Prize for drama and the 1989 Broadway production garnered the Tony Award for Best Revival of a Play.
The Hurricane Maria Community Relief & Recovery Fund will be housed at the Center for Popular Democracy (CPD) and funds will be used to support immediate relief, recovery and equitable rebuilding in Puerto Rico for low-income communities of color hit hardest by the storm. The fund will support organizations working on the frontlines with these communities.
