Annette Bening is to star in a charity reading of an Academy Award winning screenplay.
All About Eve scooped six Oscars when it was released in 1950, and on November 10 Bening will join several other performers in an evening honoring that achievement. The reading will benefit the Actors Fund of America, an organization committed to professionals in performing arts and entertainment and providing programs and services for those who are in need, crisis or transition.
Bening will read the part of Margo Channing, originally played by Bette Davis, and will be joined on stage by Tony Award winner Brian Bedford as Addison DeWitt, Tony nominee Peter Gallagher as Bill, Angela Lansbury as Birdie, Cynthia Nixon as Karen and John Slattery as Lloyd.
The reading will take place at the Eugene O’Neill Theatre in Manhattan. Emmy and DGA Award winner John Erman will direct the evening, and showtime is at 7:30 PM.
More information can be found at the Actors Fund website.
