Merkerson, Waterston, Wong Participate In Literacy Benefit

On February 8, 2010, Law & Order franchise stars S. Epatha Merkerson, Sam Waterston, and B.D. Wong will participate in a benefit for Symphony Space to celebrate its free literacy program “All Write!”. Playbill reports that "The stars of "Law & Order" will read the literacy students’ stories and poems about "arriving in and surviving in New York City, with a couple of Stephen Sondheim songs on the subject providing some musical spice," according to press notes."

Here are the details from Symphony Space :

For nearly two decades, Symphony Space has offered the All Write! literacy program, absolutely free of charge, to adult students throughout the five boroughs. Celebrate this innovative program at this one-night only performance featuring Sonia Manzano, S. Epatha Merkerson, Isaiah Sheffer, Sam Waterston, and B.D. Wong, plus musical guests Ivy Austin, Jay Leonhardt, and Lanny Meyers.
