Friday, October 20, 2017 — 

Fundraising will benefit the Hurricane Maria Community Relief & Recovery Fund, tickets go on sale Monday, October 23 at 10 a.m.

The John Gore Organization is proud to announce a special benefit reading of Thornton Wilder’s classic play Our Town at the iconic Fox Theatre on Monday, November 6, featuring Tony Award® winner Scarlett Johansson along with her Avengers co-stars: Academy Award® nominee Robert Downey Jr.Chris Evans and Tony Award nominee Mark Ruffalo. The evening, directed by Tony winner Kenny Leon and organized by Ms. Johansson, will include additional, surprise appearances by celebrities and friends. All proceeds from the one-night-only event will be donated to support the relief efforts in the wake of the devastation left by Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico.

"The struggle faced by Puerto Rican residents since their island was ravaged by Hurricane Maria is terribly heartbreaking and has left many feeling hopeless and helpless," Ms. Johansson said. "It is a great privilege to be able to participate in whatever way I can, to provide some relief to those that are struggling to access even the most basic of human needs in the aftermath of this disastrous event. Please help me and my co-stars in coming together for an extraordinary, one-time-only evening to raise lifesaving funds for a devastated island and to help celebrate the true meaning of community with this unique reading of a great American classic."

“The idea was presented by Ms. Johansson, who is currently in Atlanta filming the next Avengers movie, and we immediately asked how we could help,” said John Gore, owner of The John Gore Organization. “We couldn’t be happier to support our friend, Scarlett, and her co-stars in producing this evening for such a worthy cause.”

Tickets to this exclusive one-night only event go on sale Monday, October 23 at 10 a.m. EST and can be purchased online at FoxTheatre.org/OurTown, by phone at 855-285-8499, or in person at the Fox Theatre Box Office.

Set in the idyllic village of Grover’s Corners, New Hampshire, Our Town is a glimpse into the American experience of small town life that captures the universal experience of being alive, falling in love and facing death. Its 1938 original production earned a Pulitzer Prize for drama and the 1989 Broadway production garnered the Tony Award for Best Revival of a Play.

The Hurricane Maria Community Relief & Recovery Fund will be housed at the Center for Popular Democracy (CPD) and funds will be used to support immediate relief, recovery and equitable rebuilding in Puerto Rico for low-income communities of color hit hardest by the storm.
