Hector Elizondo, Andrea Gabriel, Arye Gross and Amy Pietz will join Tony award-winning actor Richard Easton, reprising the role he created in the off-Broadway production, when L.A. Theatre Works presents David Ives' New Jerusalem, The Interrogation of Baruch de Spinoza at Talmud Torah Congregation: Amsterdam, July 27, 1656, at the Skirball Cultural Center, July 13-15. Rosaline Ayres will direct.

Focusing on the 1656 interrogation of noted philosopher Baruch De Spinoza by the Jewish community of Amsterdam for his controversial ideas, New Jerusalem examines the clash between religion and modernity that Jews, Christians and Muslims are still struggling to reconcile some 350 years later.

All performances will be recorded to air on L.A. Theatre Works' syndicated radio theater series, which broadcasts weekly on public radio stations nationwide and can be streamed on demand at www.latw.org.
