Daytime drama star Jeff Branson will join Kelli Porterfield and Nedra McClyde in a reading of The Short Bus by Adrian Palacios at 8:00 pm on Thursday, March 5 at the LGBT Center in New York.

The play, to be directed by Fritz Brekeller, tells the story of a brilliant, over-achieving orphan whose confession to an affair with a special ed student shatters the lives of everyone riding a short school bus home from a show choir competition.

Branson has played Shayne Lewis on CBS' The Guiding Light and Jonathan Lavery of ABC's All My Children.
