Holy shiz! We guess being Alan Alda means the A-Listers just come flocking to you!
The actor will be holding a special reading of his new play, Radiance: The Passion of Marie Curie, which “explores the intellectual passions of the physicist/chemist most famous for her pioneering research on radioactivity, as well as her tumultuous private life marked by her strong determination to pursue both love and knowledge," during the opening night gala of the World Science Festival on June 1st, and none other than Meryl Streep will be performing in the title role!
Other castmembers include Amy Adams, Allison Janney, and Liev Schreiber!
Wow! Impressive line-up!
We're certainly very curious to see how this is received!
Break a leg, you guys!
