On December 3rd, 2012 at 7pm, Anthony Rapp (RENT) and Austin Peck (One Life to Live) will lead a staged reading of 'Deleted Scenes' at The Peter Jay Sharp Theater, 416 W 42nd Street. The reading marks the launch of Believe Limited's theatrical division. Believe Limited's founder, Ryan Gielen will direct the theatrical adaptation of his award winning film. The evening is presented in partnership with James Kautz (The Amoralists, Artistic Director) and 57th & Irving Productions.
'Deleted Scenes' observes two ex-friends, an actor, Josh (Peck) and a director, Brian (Rapp), forced to reunite during the Director's Commentary recording for their hit indie film, 'South Bronx.' Set five years after the film's release and their subsequent falling out, Josh is now a rising star and Brian, an ever-suffering auteur. In this multi-media production, the audience watches clips of 'South Bronx' as tension builds between the two old rivals. Wits are matched, fists are thrown and women are used, all in an attempt to prove which one has really ended up on top.
The cast features Anthony Rapp (RENT), Austin Peck (One Life to Live), Frank Vitolo (Law & Order), Katie Broad (The Pied Pipers of the Lower East Side) and Kate White (Sunburn). The production team includes Ryan Gielen (Believe Limited, Founder), James Kautz (The Amoralists, Artistic Director), Patrick Morris (57th & Irving Productions, Founder), Patrick James Lynch (Lose The Ninja Productions, Founder), and Katy Wright-Mead (Believe Limited, Producer).
Tickets are free. Pre-show open bar reception begins at 6:30pm. Q & A will follow the performance. Reservations are required and can be made at firstname.lastname@example.org.
