An all-star cast including actors Paul Newman, Meryl Streep, Philip Seymor Hoffman, Matt Damon and Julia Roberts will collaborate, in November, on a revival and adaptation of The World of Nick Adams by A. E. Hotchner and Aaron Copland. The work, originally broadcast by CBS-TV in 1957, will be presented at New York’sAvery Fisher Hall on November 19. The piece, which is based on the short stories of Ernest Hemingway, hasn’t been performed since its initial airing on television. The performance will be a benefit for Newman’s Association of Hole in the Wall Gang Camps, which services children with life-threatening diseases.
