Tim Blake Nelson to Host Soho Rep Benefit
Actor Tim Blake Nelson will host this year's benefit for Soho Rep on Monday, February 3 at the Lucille Lortel Theater.
As a highlight of the event, Christina Kirk, Paul Giamatti, and James Urbaniak -- all of whom have worked regularly at Soho Rep over the years -- will join Nelson in a performance of selections from the company's past shows. There will also be a sneak preview of Suitcase, a work in progress by Melissa James Gibson that was commissioned by Soho Rep. (Kirk and Urbaniak starred in Gibson's [sic] for the company in 2001.)
In addition to scenes from [sic] and Suitcase, the evening of entertainment -- under the direction of Soho Rep's artistic director, Daniel Aukin -- will feature selections from Quincy Long's The Year of the Baby and excerpts from various works presented as part of the theater's 10-Minute Play Series. There will also be a performance by The Flying Machine, whose Signals of Distress was developed by Soho Rep and played there earlier this season.
