Julianne Moore and Alec Baldwin in Same Time, Next Year by Bernard Slade (Virtual Staged Reading)
A virtual staged reading directed by Bob Balaban
To Benefit Guild Hall of East Hampton, NY
One of the most popular romantic comedies of our time, Same Time, Next Year ran four years on Broadway, winning a Tony Award for lead actress Ellen Burstyn. It remains one of the world’s most widely produced plays. The plot follows a love affair between two people, Doris and George, married to others, who rendezvous once a year. Twenty-five years of manners and morals are hilariously and touchingly played out by the lovers.
The performance will benefit Guild Hall and launch our new vision for the 2020 Summer Season with a focus on restarting the local creative economy through collaborations with regional artists, musicians, and performers, online and offline.
“Delicious wit, compassion, a sense of humor and a feel for nostalgia.” The New York Times
“Genuinely funny and genuinely romantic.” New York Post
