A date change has been announced for the upcoming event at the Drama Book Shop in which playwright David Lindsay-Abaire, author of Fuddy Meers and Kimberly Akimbo, is to read selections from his newest play, Wonder of the World. The reading will now take place on February 17 at 6pm.
Part of the continuing "Playwrights and Performers" series, the event was originally scheduled for January 27, 2003. But high demand for the published edition of the play necessitated a second printing that will not be ready until late January, prompting the Drama Book Shop to postpone the reading.
Wonder of the World premiered Off-Broadway last season at the Manhattan Theatre Club, starring Sarah Jessica Parker and Amy Sedaris. Kimberly Akimbo will be presented by MTC later this season.
Tickets to the Drama Book Shop event are $5 ($3 for seniors or students with a valid ID) and are available at the Drama Book Shop or by phoning 212-944-0595, ext. 418.
