What evil lurks in the hearts of men?
A Gala Reading Celebrating Frog & Peach Theatre honoring Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer.
Starring Judith Ivey (The Audience, The Devil's Advocate), Zach Grenier (The Good Wife, Deadwood), Peter Gerety (Mercy Street, The Wire), Austin Pendleton (Straight White Men), and Maggie Braine reading from Shakespeare's darkest, most hard-boiled plays.
At the elegant Greenwich House School of Music, 46 Barrow St, in the West Village.
Shakespeare? Yeah, I remember Shakespeare--wrote like a dream, had a few friends, made a few enemies.
With Shakespeare, the dames are always knockouts, and the grifters mix with the gumshoes--sometimes in high places. Sometimes the job shakes out fair, but sometimes the Right Guy gets the Big House--or the Big Sleep.
Pretty gaudy patter--not kids' stuff, but beautiful.
Feast your eyes and ears with Frog & Peach--they're putting on a nice spread all of us In-The-Know types. There will be food, booze, and some of Shakespeare's nearest & dearest to help while the night away --but keep it on the QT.
We don't want nobody dropping no dime.
