    The Actors' Fund of America has announced that Calista Flockhart will play Eve Harrington in a staged reading of "All About Eve" in Los Angeles on March 30.

    The all-star lineup for the fundraiser at the Ahmanson Theatre includes Emmy- and Screen Actors Guild Award-winner Stockard Channing as stage diva Margo Channing. The cast also includes Tim Curry as the acerbic critic Addison DeWitt; Blythe Danner as Margo's friend Karen Richards and Victor Garber as playwright Lloyd Richards.

    John Ritter will play Margo's boyfriend-director Bill Sampson. Angela Lansbury will appear as Margo's personal assistant Birdie Coonan. Carl Reiner is producer Max Fabian, and Kirk Douglas will play The Distinguished Actor.

    The top ticket for the reading -- the "Max Fabian Producers Circle" -- goes for $25,000. It includes front-row center Orchestra seats, a full-page ad in the program, acknowledgement from the stage, and invitations to a pre-show champagne reception and a cast party after the show.

    Beyond that, tickets are going for anywhere from $50 to $1,000.
