NEW YORK (AP) -- An all-star line-up including Matt Damon, Alan Alda and Vanessa Redgrave will feature in a night of readings and a town hall discussion hosted by The Public Theater.

The June 17 event at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park will also feature Christine Baranski, Gloria Reuben, Raul Esparza, Hamish Linklater, Jesse L. Martin, Lily Rabe and Marsha Stephanie Blake.

The celebrities will read from Shakespeare on money and justice while Harvard professor Michael Sandel leads a conversation about the rise of the language of money, the subject of his new book, "What Money Can't Buy: The Moral Limits of Markets."

Tickets to the free forum will be distributed, two per person, at noon on June 17 at the Delacorte Theater and there will be a drawing at the www.shakespeareinthepark.org site.
