The one-night only event, which begins at 7:30 PM, features Lewis Black ("The Daily Show," "Inside the NFL," Black on Broadway) and Robert Sean Leonard(Pygmalion, "House," "Dead Poet's Society") re-visiting roles they originated 25 years ago. The reading is directed by Jason McDowell-Green.
"Pitching To The Star glimpses behind the Hollywood glitz into the world of Peter Rosenthal, played by Leonard, an up-and-coming writer pitching his script (and blood, sweat, and tears) to a glamorous star, Dena Strawbridge," press notes state. "Emmy and Grammy award-winning comedian Lewis Black plays the idiosyncratic producer, Dick Feldman, who is in cahoots to change Rosenthal's script completely."
Following the reading is "The Perfect Pitch," a panel discussion about perfect (and not-so-perfect) Hollywood pitches. Industry experts share their best (and worst) pitches along with tales of what goes on behind the closed doors of Tinseltown. The panel features Margulies, Black, Emmy Award-winning writer and lyricist Willie Reale (Johnny Baseball, A Year With Frog and Toad) and screenwriter and producer Jay Tarses ("The Muppets Take Manhattan," "The Bob Newhart Show," "The Carol Burnett Show," "The Days and Nights of Molly Dodd").
