‘Miss Abigail’ gets industry reading

Show is preparing for Tampa run and potential Off Broadway stint

Ken Davenport will present an industry reading this week of a new play, “Miss Abigail’s Guide to Dating, Mating and Marriage,” in preparation for a run in Tampa this summer and a potential Off Broadway bow.

Davenport co-wrote the comedy with Sarah Saltzberg, a thesp who starred in “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.”

The producer’s credits include “Altar Boyz” and a developing musical adaptation of “Somewhere in Time.”

“Miss Abigail’s Guide” is based on a book of ’60s romance advice by Abigail Grotke.

Dan Ahdoot and Laurie Birmingham will star in the reading, set for Friday at Off Broadway’s Theater Three.

No casting has yet been announced for the Tampa run, set for June 9-July 3 at the David A. Straz Jr. Center for the Performing Arts.

Show aims to hit Off Broadway next season, according to a rep for Davenport.
