Highlights From Clifford Odets' Golden Boy on Broadway
Seth Numrich stars in Lincoln Center Theater's 75th-anniversary revival of Clifford Odets’ Golden Boy, which returns to the Belasco Theatre, site of the original 1937 production. Numrich stars as 21-year-old Joe Bonaparte, a gifted violinist who is seduced by the big money he could make in the boxing ring. Violence, paternal acceptance, fame, purpose, the Depression and the love of a good (but flawed) woman inform Joe's rise and fall in the gritty classic directed by Tony winner Bartlett Sher. The cast also features Tony Award winner Anthony Crivello, Yvonne Strahovski, Tony Shalhoub, Danny Mastrogiorgio, Danny Burstein and more. For more on the production, click here.
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.
