Actors Kathleen Chalfant, Charles Durning, Brian Murray, and Harris Yulin, and cabaret singer Steve Ross will help celebrate the 90th anniversary of the New York debut of Eugene O'Neill through a series of free performances at the Provincetown Playhouse (133 MacDougal Street), according to The New York Times. The celebration is being presented by Playwrights Theater of New York and the O'Neill at Yale theater project.

On Saturday, December 30 at 8pm, Ross will star in Provincetown Player, a concert about O'Neill's life up until the opening of his play Bound East for Cardiff in 1916. He will be joined by Joanna Glushak, Sarah Elliot, and the Yale a cappella group, The Society for Orpheus and Bacchus.

On January 5 at 8pm, Durning will read O'Neill's short story "Tomorrow;" on January 6 at 8pm, Chalfant and Yulin will read excerpts from O'Neill's comedy Now I Ask You; and on January 7 at 7pm, Murray will read excerpts from O'Neill's "sea plays," which include Bound East for Cardiff.

Seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
