Critical Response

“Tuesday evening’s star-studded play reading at the Academy’s Harvey Theater capped off an organized one-day series of more than 1,000 readings yesterday in all 50 states and almost other 60 countries. . . . High-profile performers such as Kevin Bacon, Kyra Sedgwick, Johnny Lee Davenport, and Mercedes Ruehl, who played the title character, headlined a 14-person cast that enthralled an openly pro-peace crowd with witty banter intermixed through the play’s adaptation.”
