A beloved grade school reading assignment will burst into three-dimensional life tonight when stage director Scott Schwartz leads a free reading of “My Antonia” at Ford’s Theatre (511 10th Street NW). The audience will witness a theatrical re-imagining of Willa Cather’s 1918 novel, the story of a friendship between Jim and Antonia, an orphan and an immigrant who meet on the Nebraska plains. The cast includes Karron Graves, Nancy Robinette and Lawrence Redmond. The show features music written and performed by composer-lyricist Stephen Schwartz, who made a name for himself by scoring works like “Pippin” and “Godspell.” General admission begins at 7. To reserve, e-mail [email protected] or call 202/347-4833.
