Chandra Wilson PhotoGrey's Anatomy star Chandra Wilson will star with Paul Mazursky in a one-night reading of Josh Greenfield's Canal Street at Los Angeles' Hayworth Theatre.

Part of the Bruno Kirby Celebrity Reading Series, Gary Blumsack will direct the event, scheduled for August 20 at 8 p.m.

Canal Street casts Mazursky as "Milton, an ornery and abrasive nursing home resident with questionable mental faculties who is paid a surprise visit by a young woman (Wilson) claiming to be his daughter."

"The two engage in a sparring match of wits and wisdom. Will they let their differences keep them strangers or can they become a family?"

Wilson â€" currently nominated (a second time) for her turn on ABC's Grey's Anatomy â€" earned a SAG Award for that role.

In the past, Chandra Wilson appeared onstage in Caroline, or Change as well as in The Good Times Are Killing Me, Paper Moon: The Musical, The Family Mann and the George C. Wolfe-directed Broadway revival of On The Town.

Mazursky is known for his work as a director on such films as Bob, Carol, Ted & Alice, Blume in Love, Down and Out in Beverly Hills, The Tempest, Harry and Tonto, An Unmarried Woman and Moscow on the Hudson.

As an actor, he has appeared in A Star Is Born, Carlito's Way and Love Affair as well as in TV's Once and Again and Curb Your Enthusiasm.
