Anne Berlin will present a staged reading of LA STREGA, directed by Noah Racey, as part of the 4th Annual Planet Connections Theatre Festivity where she is a returning artist. The Festivity will take place at 1pm on June 6 at The Theatres at 45 Bleecker in New York City.
Curtis Holbrook (Broadway’s West Side Story, Xanadu, & All Shook Up), Nikka Graff Lanzarone (Broadway’s Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, Chicago) Patti Murin (Broadway Lysistrata Jones & Xanadu), & Jason “SweetTooth” Williams (Off Broadway’s The Black Suits, Things to Ruin) have been cast in a staged reading of award winning musical theater writer and Planet Connections Theatre returning artist, Anne Berlin's new romantic comedy, LA STREGA directed by Noah Racey. Anne’s work was recently seen at The York Theatre and the New York Music Theater Festival (NYMF) and has appeared in the Planet Connections Theatre Festivity since its inception.
LA STREGA is a contemporary fast-paced romantic comedy about a modern day witch, Lucrezia, who has given up magic for a ‘normal life’ as a film publicist. But when her colleague is having relationship problems, she decides to help by dabbling with magic. Spells and romance go awry and everyone falls in love with everyone until true love finds the way! Following the reading is a wine reception recognizing (PEM) Peabody Essex Museum/ The Phillips Library for The Salem Witch Trials Paper to help raise awareness about historic Salem Witch Trials.
