Shakespeare Noir!

Frog & Peach Theatre Company is throwing an all-star reading tomorrow night.   Actors Zach Grenier, Judith Ivey, Austin Pendleton, Peter Gerety and the fabulous members of the Frog & Peach will read Shakespeare's text in honor of Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer.  I am so stoked to see the thrilling Zach Grenier again, plus I'm excited to be a part of honoring the terrific Gale Brewer, who was also my city council member. 

Eight years ago, I walked about 8 blocks from my apartment to be immersed in Macbeth as staged by Frog & Peach.   I was in awe and since then, they've become my favorite New York Shakespeare troupe. 

The evening proceeds support free and discounted tickets to Frog & Peach Main Stage productions for under-served public school students city-wide.   I love that this Company remains committed to sharing making Shakespeare accessible to kids, which is arguably is the most important and best way to learn the Master's works.  

The evening takes place tomorrow, May 2 at 7 pm, at The Greenwich House Schol of Music at 46 Barrow St, in Manhattan’s West Village.  Tickets are $49-$99 each, or a table of six for $499.

Tickets are available via Eventbrite.
