Two-time Tony nominee Christopher Sieber (Shrek the Musical, Spamalot), most recently on Broadway in the Tony-winning revival of Company, will be part of the cast of a free reading of Daniel Tobias' Be Still Be Silent February 2 at 2 PM at Open Jar Studios.
Directed by John Treacy Egan (The Producers, The Little Mermaid), the cast of the 29-hour Actors' Equity Association reading will also feature Jonathan Freeman (Aladdin), Julia Murney (Wicked), Ariel Shafir (Only Murders in the Building), and Joshua David Robinson.
The play is set on opening night for three-time Tony-winning director Eugene Thomas (Sieber), who hasn't had a hit in years. His girlfriend Cynthia (Murney) shows up with her autistic teen nephew (Robinson), much to the displeasure of Eugene. Eugene's acerbic best friend and theatre critic, Peter (Freeman), vehemently offers his opinions, and with the help of Doorman Otto (Shafir), forces Eugene to make a decision.
The reading is produced by The SOOP Theater Company, led by Artistic Director Paul Romanello. To attend, email [email protected].
