Rachel Brosnahan to Lead One Night Only Reading at NYTW

New York Theatre Workshop (NYTW) announced today a special one-night-only reading of Play Yourself by two-time Obie Award winner Harry Kondoleon (Anteroom; The Houseguest) directed by Obie Award winner Lee Sunday Evans (Dance Nation, [Porto]) and featuring two-time Golden Globe Award and Emmy Award winner Rachel Brosnahan (Othello, "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel," "House of Cards"). The reading will benefit NYTW's Artist Workshop and Education programming and will take place at New York Theatre Workshop (79 East 4th Street) on Monday, October 7, 2019 at 7:30pm.

"Harry Kondoleon has been at the heart of New York Theatre Workshop longer than I have," says Artistic Director James C. Nicola. "I came to NYTW in 1988 with the hope of doing Play Yourself and I'm honored to have the chance to see it again on our stage." Kondoleon'sChristmas on Mars was among the earliest productions at the fledgling New York Theatre Workshop, in a co-production with Playwrights Horizons. This one-night-only event welcomes Rachel Brosnahan back to the NYTW stage after her celebrated performance in the sold-out run of Othello in 2016. Additional casting will be announced shortly.

Play Yourself is part of a year-long celebration of New York Theatre Workshop's 40th Anniversary, featuring a variety of events honoring the past and celebrating the future of a community dedicated to helping us all better understand our world through theatre. This one-night-only reading is the latest in a slate of events including a RENT Live watch-party; NYTW's 40th Anniversary Gala honoring NYTW Founding Trustee Stephen Graham; On This Block, a celebration of the East 4th Street community in partnership with FAB; a #WorkshopNight celebration to welcome Hadestown to Broadway; and the upcoming December 9, 2019 celebration of the 10th Anniversary of Mind the Gap, an intergenerational theatre program that brings together teens and elders to write plays inspired by each other's lives.
