Henry Rollins, Megan Mullally, Josh Radnor and More Perform The Pale King by David Foster Wallace

When David Foster Wallace committed suicide in 2008, he left behind legions of grieving fans, a gaping hole in the literary world, and an unfinished novel about agents of the Internal Revenue Service in Peoria, Illinois. That book, pieced together and published posthumously, will be brought to life this coming Thursday by a handful of Hollywood notables.

THE PALE KING: MONOLOGUES FROM THE UNFINISHED NOVEL BY DAVID FOSTER WALLACE will take place at the Saban Theatre in Beverly Hills on April 28. Performers include Henry Rollins, Rosemarie DeWitt, Adam Scott, Rob Delaney, René Auberjonois, and more. The event is being hosted by LA Times book critic, David L. Ulin, and sponsored by PEN Center USA.

Tickets for the event go for $25 and $65 and are available from both the Saban Theatre box office and Ticketmaster. The latter will gouge you on fees.
