A special benefit reading and discussion with the artists of Peter Hedges’ Good As New starring Julianne Moore and Kaitlyn Dever, directed by the author, to be presented on MCC’s YouTube channel on Thursday, July 16 at 7:00 PM EST.

Revisiting this acclaimed work – a brutal one-act comedy about a learning-to-drive daughter who comes face-to-face with the mother she thinks has let her down – Good As New first played in 1993-94 as part of MCC’s (then called Manhattan Class Company) One Acts. It was then extended to a full-length work and presented by MCC in 1997.

Good As New will be streamed via YouTube with live-captioning and can be accessed via a link sent to ticket buyers before the reading. Tickets for the broadcast start at $5.00 (limited allocation). Additional tickets will be allocated and available at $15.00 and $25.00, on a first come, first served basis. Current patrons and current 20/21 season subscribers of MCC Theater can view for free. All information and tickets can be found on http://www.mcctheater.org/tix/good-as-new
