David Garrison, Sean Hudock & Ellen Foley Set for DEEPLY SUPERFICIAL Reading at La MaMa in May
11 am Wednesday May 11, 2016 at La Galleria at La MaMa, located on 47 Great Jones Street New York
Tony Award nominee David Garrison, Sean Hudock and Ellen Foley will appear in an industry reading of writer and film executive Michael Menzies' new play DEEPLY SUPERFICIAL.
Multiple Barrymore Award-winning director Charles Abbott will helm the presentation.
Based on his published memoir of the same name, DEEPLY SUPERFICIAL brings Menzies' enchanted life to the stage with the same unique wit and charm that has captivated Michael Menzies readers for decades. Lured by film legend Marlene Dietrich and theatre icon Noel Coward and driven by a vivid imagination, Michael journeys from New Zealand to New York, by way of London, Paris and Berlin, on a young man's search of a lifetime.
DEEPLY SUPERFICIAL is presented by Wild Root Co, a New York City production endeavor committed to the development of inventive new works from playwrights and screenwriters, with developmental support from La MaMa and Mark Heidel.
