Tony winner Diahann Carroll
Diahann Carroll's one-woman show, The Lady… The Music… The Legend, will be filmed for future presentation on PBS stations.
Carroll, an Tony Award winner for Best Actress in a Musical for No Strings, was nominated for an Academy Award for "Claudine" and won a Golden Globe Award for her role on the television series "Julia." Carroll has also appeared on Broadway in House of Flowers and Agnes of God and starred as Norma Desmond in the Toronto engagement of Sunset Boulevard. She is currently appearing on TV's "White Collar" on USA.
The live performance will be filmed April 21 at the Annenberg Theater at the Palm Springs Art Museum in Palm Springs, CA.
Produced by Jim Casey through J&J Productions, Kim Waltrip, Charles McCutcheon and Jeffrey Lane in conjunction with The PS Film Here, LLC, The Lady… The Music… The Legend will be edited into a three-part, 60-minute concert to air in August on PBS stations.
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.
