Set in 1920s Buenos Aires, Bordello is inspired Raquel Liberman, a Polish immigrant who was forced into prostitution after the sudden death of her husband shortly after she and her family immigrated to Argentina. After four years of captivity in an international sex-trafficking ring, a false second marriage, and a downpour of hate and shame, her fight to achieve justice for everyone the ring had harmed comes to fruition. 

Featuring a musical theatre score that incorporates tango, klezmer, and other sounds of the period, the reading will star Dana Aber, Harrison Bryan, Emily Brockway, Ellie Biron, Alison Cimmet, Omar Cepero-Lopez, Cicily Daniels, Ryan Duncan, Jamie LaVerdiere, Jillian Louis, Benjamin Magnuson, Samantha Massell, Shereen Pimentel, Cheryl Stern, Pablo Torres, and Eric Van Tielen.
