Rosie Perez, Peter Reigert and Chip Zien will star in a reading of Murray Schisgal's Playtime, to be presented in The Green Room Theatre at 45 Bleecker on Monday, April 5 at 8pm.

The play is an absurdist tragicomedy about the financial shenanigans of our fervently industrious Wall Street entrepreneurs.

The reading is the inaugural event for Bleecker Street Theatre Company, a new, not-for-profit resident theatre company at 45 Bleecker devoted to developing new plays. The company will be headed by Peter Zinn.

The company's next venture will be a Playwrights Symposium titled The Playwright's Journey - the state of things, featuring Schisgal, along with Israel Horovitz, Mario Fratti, Donna de Matteo, and Quincy Long. The event will be held on Tuesday, April 13 beginning at 7:30pm as a benefit for the company.
