A co-presentation with Westport Arts Center and sponsored by WSHU. Join host Isaiah Sheffer as he brings the renowned Symphony Space program to the Playhouse stage. This evening feature Golden Globe Award and five-time Emmy nominee Jill Eikenberry,
two-time Tony Award-winner Frances Sternhagen and
Broadway actress Myra Lucretia Taylor, reading stories by Eudora Welty, Alice Walker and Julie Orringer, authors who have been nurtured and inspired by the isolation and vital community of The MacDowell Colony, which James Baldwin
called a place "to crouch in order to spring."
