I’m still not sure what this play is about. But I’d go just because of the title.
Writer Amy Holson-Schwartz — a 2002 Staples grad — submitted it for a Theater Resources Unlimited table reading.
There were 40 entries. TRU picked 3 — including “Yarmulke.”
The reading takes place Monday (7 p.m., Players Theatre, 115 MacDougal Street, New York). Then comes a “lively and honest discussion” about the work, with a panel of prominent producers and general managers. One of the panelists specializes in “Jewish-themed presentations.” Who knew?
Next stop: Los Angeles. “Yarmulke” may be produced there in the fall.
Amy follows in her mother’s footsteps. Former Westporter Nancy Holson is well known for her crowd-pleasing First Night satire “The News in Revue.”
One more Westport connection: Marc Bailin, who’s helping put on the show, grew up here. He still lives nearby.
