Directed by David Staller, the one-night-only performance will be held at Symphony Space's Leonard Nimoy Thalia Theatre on Monday, July 17, at 7pm.

The evening will feature performances by Blair Brown, Julie Halston, Jayne Houdyshell, Mia Katigbak, Charlotte Moore, Daphne Rubin-Vega, and additional actors to be announced soon.
