Stage and screen star F. Murray Abraham (Amadeus) will star in a benefit performance of Edward Albee's Fragments for New Jersey's Black Box PAC April 6. The performance will be held in Teaneck's Debonair Music Hall, where the company is currently in residence.

Fragments made its world premiere in 1993 via Ensemble Theatre of Cincinnati prior to a 1994 Off-Broadway bow via Signature Theatre. The action follows a group of people reading proverbs to each other, each also sharing personal stories they hope will shed light on their personal truths. Albee himself described the unusual work as "a tricky little play, great fun for actors, the construction of which bewildered many who could not comprehend that dramatic shape need not be linear but could be a vortex, moving from all sides at once toward a culminating center..."

Abraham will be joined in the cast by Black Box favorites Michael Gardiner, Ilana Schimmel, J. Niles, Danielle MacMath, Alexandra Brokowski, Arthur Gregory Pugh, and Deb Maclean.

Matt Okin is directing the production, which is being presented by special arrangement with The Estate of Edward Albee and Jakob Holder, executive director of The Edward F. Albee Foundation.

Tickets are available at BlackBoxPAC.com.
