Tony winners to read at Ted Kennedy tribute in NY
NEW YORK – Tony Award winners Fritz Weaver and Tammy Grimes will be among those reading at a tribute to the late Sen. Edward Kennedy.
Selections from Robert Frost, Walt Whitman and other poets whom Kennedy admired will be featured at the event at Saint Peter’s Church in midtown Manhattan on Feb. 22. That would have been Kennedy’s 78th birthday.
Kennedy, a Democrat from Massachusetts, died of brain cancer last summer.
The event is free and is sponsored by the nonprofit organization Toward International Peace through the Arts.
