Mike Birbiglia worked out his first one-man show, Sleepwalk With Me, as stand-up comedy bits, then as short stories for public radio, and eventually a successful Off-Broadway run, book and CD. Now Birbigs is looking to turn it into a feature film.
On June 1, you'll be able to get a sense of what that, at least, might sound like, as the Sundance Institute Screenplay Reading Series of Works-in-Progress presents a free reading of Sleepwalk With Me's screenplay. Birbiglia has written and will direct the movie.
The reading takes place at 7:30 p.m. June 1, 2011, at The Barrow Street Theatre in New York City's West Village, where Birbigs is wrapping up a successful run of his second Off-Broadway show, My Girlfriend's Boyfriend.
Though the event is free, seating is first-come, first-served, and an RSVP is required. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
