THEIR FAVORITE THINGS: Stage and Screen Star Brooke Shields Shares Her Cherished Theatregoing Experiences
17 Apr 2012
Playbill.com's new feature series, Their Favorite Things, asks members of the theatre community to share ten of the Broadway performances that most affected them as part of the audience.
This week we spotlight the choices of stage and screen star Brooke Shields, who will play Elsa Schraeder in Carnegie Hall's upcoming concert presentation of the classic Rodgers and Hammerstein musical The Sound of Music, which is scheduled for April 24 at 8 PM in the Stern Auditorium/Perelman Stage.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
