Kathleen Chalfant and More Set for ReGroup's Tennessee Williams Benefit Readings, 2/23

In celebration of the upcoming release of James Grissom's long awaited book Follies of God, and as the 2nd event in the 'ReGroup Reads' series, The ReGroup presents a one-night-only benefit reading of select Williams' rare short plays. Guest artists Lois Smith and Kathleen Chalfant are scheduled to join the ReGroup members in the readings.

The One-Acts will be followed by a wine reception and Q&A with the guest artists and moderated by Mr. Grissom. Benefit tickets include an advance copy of the book- weeks before its release date. A book signing will conclude the evening.

The benefit takes place at 7 PM, February 23, 2015 at TBG Mainstage Theatre, 312 W 36th St (btw 8-9th Ave). A limited number of VIP tickets include table seating on the floor, champagne and hors d'ouveres. All tickets can be purchased at SmartTix or by calling (212) 868-4444.

The ReGroup Theatre is a not-for-profit theatre company devoted to carrying American Theatre history into the future. Starting with the plays of the Group Theatre, ReGroup has presented 6 full productions of their lost plays, many for the first time in 80 years, along with 12 fully staged readings, including the unpublished Clifford Odets' play SILENT PARTNER and JOHNNY JOHNSON directed by Estelle Parsons. They recently presented Preston Jones' A TEXAS TRILOGY in repertory. In addition to their productions, they have published 3 volumes of The Lost Group Theatre Plays, most of which have been out of print or never before published. Paul Green Jr. referred to their recent revival of THE HOUSE OF CONNELLY as "an artistic earthquake," and critic Peter Filichia writes "ReGroup is one of the most important companies in the city. Allie Mulholland unearths long-neglected treasures and directs them with loving care. He is the round-the-clock nurse for the Fabulous Invalid. Don't miss even one of his productions."
