Carolyn Boyd (Sleep No More) is stage managing and Lizzy Jarrett is reading stage directions.
The reading will be followed by a "Dollars and Sense" panel including Georgia Buchanan, former consultant and managing director the York Theater, National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene, The Women's Project and Shakespeare Theatre of NJ, producer (Communicating Doors, Kat and the Kings); David Elliott, Perry Street Theatricals (Vanya & Sonia & Masha & Spike, Dames at Sea revival, Hamlet/St. Joan, Georgie, an oak tree); Jennifer Manocherian, producer (Lifespan of a Fact, Meteor Shower, Nice Work If You Can Get It, Dead Accounts, The Mountaintop, War Horse); Frank Zuback, producer (Roof of the World, American Soldier, Taking Leave).
