New York, NY - (7/27/21) Play-PerView (Jeremy Wein/Jennifer Campos, Producers) is happy to announce its latest streaming programming for the coming months.
Through August 4th, Play PerView is taking one of its biggest streaming events out of the vault in celebration of Comic-Con "@Home 2021." In January 2021, the company presented "Clockblockers Unite: A TIMLESS Evening", a reunion of the cast and creators of the NBC series "Timeless." Taking part in the evening were series co-creators Shawn Ryan ("The Shield') and Eric Kripke (Amazon's "The Boys") with stars Malcolm Barrett ("Preacher"), Claudia Doumit ("The Boys"), Sakina Jaffrey ("House of Cards"), Matt Lanter ("The Mandalorian"), Abigail Spencer ("True Detective") and Goran Višnjić ("ER"). The evening featured a reading of the Season 2 episode "Hollywoodland," featuring new material written specifically for this event. Original performers Beau Brians, John Colton, Matthew Downs, James DuMont, Jordan Farris, Chris Gann, Chet Grissom, Ravi Naidu, Josh Randall, and Mari Weiss are reprising their roles. Special guests Cory Michael Smith, Shantel VanSanten and Annie Wersching will also participate.
The reading will be followed by a moderated discussion led by Alex Zalben Managing Editor of Decider.com. For more information and tickets, please visit here. All proceeds will benefit Feeding America.
Beginning Thursday August 5th (on demand through August 9th) Play-PerView will present a reunion reading of SoHo Rep's 2013 production of David Adjmi's (3C) Marie Antoniette starring Tony nominee Marin Ireland (Tony Nominee Reasons To Be Pretty, "Y: The Last Man") under the direction of Tony Winner Rebecca Taichman (Indecent).
In David Adjmi's contemporary take on the young queen of France, Marie is a confection created by a society that values extravagance and artifice. But France's love affair with the royals sours as revolution brews, and for Marie, the political suddenly becomes very personal. From the light and breezy banter at the palace to the surging chants of "Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité!" in the streets, Marie Antoinette holds a mirror up to our contemporary society that might just be entertaining itself to death.
The cast also features Jennifer Ikeda✢("Dash & Lily", Vietgone), David Greenspan✢ (Six Time Obie Winner), Karl Miller✢ ("The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel", "The Blacklist"), Will Pullen✢ (To Kill A Mockingbird, "DICKINSON"), Steven Rattazzi✢ (Indecent, "The Venture Brothers"), Chris Stack✢ (Secret Life of Bees, Ugly Lies The Bone), Kat Williams (For All The Women Who Thought They Were Mad) and Carmen Zilles (Bel Canto, Fefu and Her Friends). (✢ denotes original cast member). Virtual tickets starting at just $5.00 are available here. All proceeds will benefit Cultural Solidarity Fund.

For 40 years, Feeding America has responded to the hunger crisis in America by providing food to people in need through a nationwide network of food banks.
The concept of food banking was developed by John van Hengel in Phoenix, AZ in the late 1960s. Van Hengel, a retired businessman, had been volunteering at a soup kitchen trying to find food to serve our neighbors facing hunger. One day, he met a desperate mother who regularly rummaged through grocery store garbage bins to find food for her children. She suggested that there should be a place where, instead of being thrown out, discarded food could be stored for people to pick up-similar to the way "banks" store money for future use. With that, an industry was born.
Van Hengel established St. Mary's Food Bank in Phoenix, AZ as the nation's first food bank. In its initial year, van Hengel and his team of volunteers distributed 275,000 pounds of food to people in need. Word of the food bank's success quickly spread, and states began to take note. By 1977, food banks had been established in 18 cities across the country.
As the number of food banks began to increase, van Hengel created a national organization for food banks and in 1979 he established Second Harvest, which was later called America's Second Harvest the Nation's Food Bank Network. In 2008, the network changed its name to Feeding America to better reflect the mission of the organization.
Today, Feeding America is the nation's largest domestic hunger-relief organization-a powerful and efficient network of 200 food banks across the country. As food insecurity rates hold steady at the highest levels ever, the Feeding America network of food banks has risen to meet the need. We feed 40 million people at risk of hunger, including 12 million children and 7 million seniors. Learn more about how we get food to people in need in our "How We Work" section. Support Feeding America and help solve hunger. Donate. Volunteer. Advocate. Educate.
CULTURAL SOLIDARITY FUND
The Cultural Solidarity Fund is an initiative administered by the Indie Theater Fund with leadership by LEIMAY that provides relief microgrants of $500 to artists and cultural workers including individual artists, administrators, production staff, custodians, art educators, ushers, guards, and more and prioritizes Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC), immigrant, disabled, and trans and gender-nonconforming individuals who have been most severely impacted by the pandemic.
In the spirit of coalition and resource sharing, NYC arts and cultural organizations of all sizes and structures continue to come together to grow a joint Cultural Solidarity Fund. The current Organizing Group of the CSF is seventeen organizations that meet weekly and are involved in decision making and idea implementation processes through collaborative work.
To date, more than 200 organizations and individuals have come together to raise $125,000. We received an overwhelming 2,722 applications with 56% of applicants expressing dire need for food and housing funds, far outpacing the current funds available. We were able to fund 9% of applicants (81% from our priority groups) and our new goal is to raise $300,000, in order to fund all priority applicants who reported the highest level of urgency.
Play-PerView is an organization that believes in the power of community and highlights the ways in which artists can support one another both in times of triumph and crisis with love, joy, and innovation in the digital age. Play-PerView programs a variety of one-time-only events-including play readings, non-scripted series, panel discussions, and more-to provide live-streamed content for audiences who love the experience of live entertainment and, due to the restrictions created by physical distancing practices, can no longer attend in person. In response to the global pandemic-as well as a desire to bring live theatrical experiences to audiences outside of the major hubs of New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles-this initiative will raise funds for arts organizations and other charities such as The Actors Fund, Broadway Cares, not-for-proﬁt institutions, and theatrical unions who are helping to relieve those in need of ﬁnancial assistance due to job loss, medical bills, and other essential needs.
