Join Raven for a one-night-only benefit reading of Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune by Terrence McNally. Raven’s Artistic Director, Cody Estle, will direct Noah Simon and Jeff Award-nominated actor Kelli Strickland in this touching look at what happens when two people finally begin to let love back into their lives. Frankie and Johnny, 40-something-year-old coworkers at a New York diner, are basking in the post-coital glow of their first date when they realize there is something special about their relationship. A request to a radio station to play the most beautiful piece of music ever sets the mood as they embark on the romantic journey of their lives. Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune premiered off-Broadway in 1987, in a production starring Kathy Bates and F. Murray Abraham. A film adaptation came out in 1991. Your ticket includes champagne, hors d’oeuvres, and dessert in addition to the reading. All proceeds benefit Raven’s mainstage plays and education program.
