NEW YORK – Frog and Peach Theatre Company will present a star-studded reading of Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night” on Tuesday, September 17 at The Player’s Club, 16 Gramercy Park South, with a cast including Len Cariou, Richard Kind, Susie Essman, Darrell Hammond, Alan Zweibel,Scott Adsit, Maulik Pancholy and Alan Zweibel. An original score by Ian McDonald (King Crimson, Foreigner) will be performed live by Mr. McDonald.

The reading will be directed by Lynnea Benson, Artistic Director of Frog and Peach Theatre Company.  Its running time will be approximately 1 hour, 20 minutes (plus intermission).

The heat is on in the seaside town of Illyria, where the fun-loving Sir Toby the diabolical Maria and prankster-in-training, Fabian (Richard Kind, Alan Zweiber and Susie Essman of “Curb Your Enthusiasm”) join forces with wit extraordinaire Feste (Darrell Hammond) against the prudish snob Malvolio (Tony Award Winner Len Cariou) in Shakespeare’s most hilarious play. Scott Adsit (of “30 Rock”) plays Sir Andrew, Maulik Pancholy (also of “30 Rock”) plays Sebastian and comedian Alan Zweibel plays Fabian.

The reading will also feature Amy Frances Quint as Viola, Kaitlin Large as Olivia, Ryan Tramont as Orsino, Brando Boniver as Antonio, Stephen Siano as Valentine and Jonathan Reed Wexler as The Captain.  Original Songs are by Ted Zurkowski.
