The New Group has announced that Marin Ireland and Amanda Seyfried will join previously announced original cast members from the company's 2005 hit revival of David Rabe's Hurlyburly in a one-night-only benefit reading of the play. Directed by Scott Elliott, the reading, which will take place April 26 at the Pershing Square Signature Center, will benefit the New Group.

The reading will also feature original stars Bobby Cannavale (Phil), Josh Hamilton (Mickey), Ethan Hawke (Eddie), Parker Posey (Darlene), and Wallace Shawn (Artie). Ireland and Seyfried will play Bonnie and Donna, originated in the 2005 production by Catherine Kellner and Halley Wegryn Gross.

Hurlyburly depicts the addled lives of four Los Angeles men caught in love-hate relationships with Hollywood women, in a brutally comic reflection on the decade of decadence in the cocaine-and-sex infused Hollywood Hills in the mid-1980s. The New Group production received five Lucille Lortel Award nominations, winning one for Parker Posey in the Outstanding Featured Actress category, and four Drama Desk Award nominations, including Outstanding Revival.

The drama originally opened off-Broadway in 1984 before transferring to Broadway, receiving four 1985 Tony nominations and winning one for Judith Ivey in the Best Featured Actress in a Play category.

The event is part of the New Group's 20th anniversary season.
