Manhattan Theatre Club will launch its virtual “Curtain Call” series with Richard Wesley’s “The Past Is the Past,” which will stream on demand from Thursday, February 18 through Sunday, February 28.
The reading, directed by Oz Scott, stars Emmy Award nominee Jovan Adepo (“Watchmen”) and two-time Emmy Award winner and Obie Award winner Ron Cephas Jones (“This Is Us”). It is set in a pool hall, where a man in his mid-40s shoots a solitary game until a college student he has never met challenges him to play. As their game goes on, it becomes clear that the men realize they have a deep connection to each other.
Upcoming readings in the monthly “Curtain Call” series, which is focused on new readings of previously produced productions, will include “Three Days of Rain,” written by Richard Greenberg, directed by Evan Yionoulis, with Patricia Clarkson, John Slattery, and Bradley Whitford; “Neat” written and performed by Charlayne Woodard; and “Beauty of the Father,” written by Nilo Cruz and directed by Michael Greif.
Tickets to the reading are free and can be reserved at www.manhattantheatreclub.com/events/mtc-curtain-call-series.
