Event description

Description

A table read of the first half of the first season of About Magazine's first original sitcom, The Anthony Project. Starring Anthony Ramirez, Wendy Taylor, Ty Frazier, Teresa Zimmermann, Julitta Pourciau, and more, the show is executive produced by Ramirez and Taylor, with supervising production by New Country KSCS's Al Farb.

The show revolves around a fictionalized version of Ramirez and deals with real issues he's dealt with in the past. Set half in the fall/winter of 2018 and half in the spring of 2019, The Anthony Project finds its titular character the night after he has been raped, flashing back to the events several months before after his grandmother has died and leading up to the events transpiring around the rape. While the story is a dark comedy, Ramirez states that the major, darker themes of the series -- such as rape, death, homophobic work environments, and substance abuse -- are all based on events that took place in his life. When we find the comedy's protagonist, he is working as a writer at a fictionalized version of About Magazine as he tries to juggle the cartoonish antics of his coworkers Sofia, Alex, Kelsey, Kara, Erin, and Jackie, while also struggling to cope with the death of his late grandmother and his recent sexual assault.

Guests are asked to arrive 30 minutes before the performance begins at noon.
