Everything Everywhere All at Once Oscar nominee Stephanie Hsu, seen on Broadway in Be More Chill and SpongeBob Squarepants, stars in the title role of Signature Theatre's April 24 benefit reading of Signature Spotlight Resident Sarah Ruhl’s Eurydice.
Part of the Signature Gala, held at the Pershing Square Signature Center, the reading is directed by Les Waters. Eurydice made its Off-Broadway premiere in 2007.
The cast also features Tony winner Bill Irwin (Endgame, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?) as Eurydice’s Father, Tony nominee Tom Sturridge (The Sandman, Sea Wall/A Life) as Orpheus, and Wallace Shawn (My Dinner with Andre, Aunt Dan and Lemon) as A Nasty Interesting Man/The Lord of the Underworld, plus Michael Cyril Creighton (Only Murders in the Building, Spotlight), Jacob Ming-Trent (Watchmen, Shrek the Musical), and Heather Alicia Simms (Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, A Raisin in the Sun, Fairview) as the Stones, with Ruhl reading stage directions.
Ruhl began her Signature Spotlight Residency this year with the Kate Whoriskey-directed world premiere of Letters from Max, a ritual, which recently concluded its extended run.
Signature’s 2023 Gala—which begins with cocktails at 5:30 PM, followed by the reading and awards presentation at 6:30 PM and dinner and dancing at 8:30 PM—also honors Board President Douglas E. Chittenden with the Margot Adams Signature Award. Proceeds support Signature Theatre’s productions and its playwright residency model.
