Tony nominee Celia Keenan-Bolger is heading to Grover's Corners. The actress will appear alongside Tony nominee Rebecca Luker and Tony winner Adriane Lenox for a one-night-only staged reading of Thornton Wilder's Our Town. The performance, to be held on March 4 at the Gerald Lynch Theatre, will benefit The Actors Fund. Peter Flynn will direct the reading, which commemorates the 75th anniversary of the play’s Broadway opening. Additional casting will be announced at a later date.
Wilder's most renowned and frequently performed play, Our Town is a Pulitzer Prize-winning drama about life in the small village of Grover’s Corners, an allegorical representation of all life.
Keenan-Bolger earned Tony nominations for Peter and the Starcatcher and The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. Her additional theater credits include the 2006 revival of Les Miserables, Merrily We Roll Along, Bachelorette, A Small Fire, Saved, Juno and Little Fish. She currently stars in A.R.T's production of The Glass Menagerie opposite Cherry Jones and Zachary Quinto.
A three-time Tony nominee for Mary Poppins, The Music Man and Show Boat, Luker has also appeared on Broadway in Nine, The Sound of Music, The Phantom of the Opera and The Secret Garden.
Lenox won a Tony Award for her performance in Doubt and has appeared in Caroline, or Change, Kiss Me, Kate and Chicago.
