Fans of "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel," this is no joke. Rachel Brosnahan, who stars as a housewife turned female stand-up comic on the 1950s-set Amazon Prime series, will return to the New York City stage for one night only.

Brosnahan will be featured in a reading of "Play Yourself" by Obie Award winner Harry Kondoleon at New York Theatre Workshop on Oct. 7 at 7:30 p.m. Additional casting is still to be announced. Proceeds from the event, which is part of New York Theatre Workshop's 40th anniversary celebration,  will benefit the group's Artist Workshop and Education programming. The actress last appeared at the theater in 2016 as Desdemona in the Shakespeare tragedy "Othello."

"Play Yourself," which has shades of "All About Eve," centers on a former movie star who lives with her daughter and lets an obsessed fan into their lives. Tickets for the reading start at $75 and can be purchased by calling 212-460-5475 or visiting If you're feeling lucky, you can go to for a shot at winning $25 seats in the CheapTix digital lottery. Wouldn't that be marvelous?
