Wood, Benoist & Flockhart Join Charity Event

Berlanti Productions and Jessica Queller will present an exclusive one-night-only reading of Terms of Endearment at the Geffen Playhouse. All proceeds from the fundraiser will benefit Stand Up To Cancer and Geffen Playhouse’s New Play Development Program. The event will take place Monday, October 1, at the Geffen Playhouse in Los Angeles. The all-star cast includes Golden Globe-winning and Emmy Award-nominated Calista Flockhart as Aurora Greenway, Chris Wood as Flap Horton and Melissa Benoist as Emma Greenway, with additional casting to be announced. They will be performing an intimate reading of the iconic, five-time Academy Award-winning classic film, including Best Picture (1983). A dessert reception will follow.

Supporting artists is central to the Geffen Playhouse’s mission, and the New Play Development Program is a cornerstone of that support. As one branch of the Geffen’s many efforts to foster new work, The Writers’ Room playwrights group creates community between visionary Los Angeles artists, many of whom are emerging on the national theater scene. This monthly group provides the resources to help writers develop ambitious passion projects—plays and musicals that shed new light on the pressing issues of our city and our time.

Stand Up To Cancer enables scientific breakthroughs by funding collaborative, multidisciplinary, multi-institutional scientific research teams and investigators. Thanks to the support of our dedicated partners and the entertainment community, SU2C is able to bring widespread attention to cancer research. 100% of donations received from the public support Stand Up To Cancer’s collaborative cancer research programs. In just 10 years, SU2C research has contributed to FDA approval of five new cancer therapies, including treatments for breast, ovarian, and pancreatic cancers and difficult-to-treat leukemias.


Tickets are priced at $100 - $200 and available in person at the Geffen Playhouse box office or online at

This charity event is music to my ears. I love it when these talented actors give back in this way. However, isn't it interesting that Monty is the cad in the reading. Something is rotten in Denmark. If this event was in NYC, I would go. Maybe they will do it next time.
