Claire Danes, who currently stars in the Public Theater production of Dry Powder, made an appearance on Late Night: Seth Meyers to chat about her latest role.
The Golden Globe winner explained that her Homeland co-star, Mandy Patinkin, gave her the script for Sarah Burgess’ Dry Powder while they were filming in Berlin. “I owe this entirely to Mr. Patinkin,” she told the host about her return to the New York stage.
The stage and screen actress also spoke about sleeping audience members; “I envy the rest these people get,” she joked.

Performances began March 1 for the world premiere of Dry Powder, about the people shaping the American economy, helmed by Hamilton director Thomas Kail. The cast features Danes, Tony nominee Hank Azaria ( Spamalot), Sanjit De Silva (War Horse) and Emmy nominee John Krasinski (The Office).
