Tom Hanks, Bette Midler, William Shatner and Martin Short are just a few of the megastars assembling for the Simply Shakespeare benefit reading of Twelfth Night. Other fan-favorite performers appearing include Rita Wilson, Christina Applegate, Jason Alexander, Monty Python's Eric Idle, Gillian Jacobs (Community), Glenn Howerton (It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia), Anthony Mackie (Captain America: Civil War) and more. This hilarious evening of impromptu Shakespeare and song also includes a chance to mingle with the cast at the post-performance reception. Held at The Broad Stage, an intimate, 500-seat venue in Santa Monica, this lighthearted tribute to the Bard benefits the Shakespeare Center of Los Angeles, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary of empowering underserved youth and veterans through Shakespeare's work.
Running time is approximately 70 minutes.
