Some of the biggest names in entertainment are coming together for one night only for a reading of a Shakespearean classic on stage.

Paul McCartney, Tom Hanks, his wife Rita Wilson, and William Shatner are scheduled to appear for the Shakespeare Center Los Angeles’ Simply Shakespeare event at the center’s Broad Stage on September, 25th at 8 p.m., reports Laist.

Reading the classic tale of Two Gentlemen Of Verona, the above mentioned A-listers will also be joined by even more big names for the star-studded event.

As you can imagine, a one-of-a-kind event like this doesn’t come cheap. Tickets to attend the stellar evening run a steep $1,500, but go to a good cause to benefit SCLA, which runs arts-based veterans employment and youth employment programs for inner-city youth, according to Laist.

If you can swing the funds to attend, contact Lauran Huff at Levy, Pazanti & Associates at (310) 201-5033 or via email at
