Inside Rehearsals With Danny Burstein, Rebecca Naomi Jones, and More for Describe the Night
Joining Burstein (Fiddler on the Roof) and Jones (Significant Other) are Tina Benko (The Public’s Julius Caesar), Nadia Bowers (The Farnsworth Invention), Zach Grenier (The Good Wife), Max Gordon Moore (Indecent), and Stephen Stocking (Archduke at the Mark Taper Forum).
The play was commissioned by Houston's Alley Theatre, where a separate company began performances September 15 at the Quintero Theatre—the venue change followed the impact of Hurricane Harvey, which left Texas’ Alley Theatre with severe water damage.
