Stars in the House, the daily live streamed concert series created by Playbill correspondent and SiriusXM Broadway host Seth Rudetsky and producer James Wesley, reunites the cast of the Gingold Theatrical Group's 2019 production of Caesar & Cleopatra for a reading of the Bernard Shaw classic September 27.
Directed and hosted by David Staller, the reading features Tony nominees Brenda Braxton and Robert Cuccioli as well as Mirirai Sithole, Jeff Applegate, Rajesh Bose, Dan Domingues, and Jonathan Hadley. The performance will be available above beginning at 2 PM ET.
This is Gingold’s fifth partnership with Stars in the House' reading spinoff Plays in the House, following Candida, Misalliance, Arms and the Man, and Mrs. Warren’s Profession, all adapted and directed by Staller. The stream will be available for four days following the initial live reading.
Stars in the House launched March 16 to promote support for The Actors Fund and its services in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. It has also raised funds for the NAACP's Legal Defense Fund in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.
New shows—typically streaming Monday–Saturday at 8 PM ET with afternoon shows Saturday and Sunday at 2 PM—feature performances by stars of stage and screen, in conversation and song with Rudetsky and Wesley. Peter Flynn serves as streaming director. Click here to watch previous episodes.
