Drama League Presents Up Close With Bobby Steggert and Terrence McNally May 12
12 May 2014
Tony Award nominee Bobby Steggert is featured in the Drama League's Up Close series May 12 at 7 PM.
Held at the Drama League Center in Tribeca, the evening features a conversation between Steggert and award-winning playwright Terrence McNally.
Here's how the event is billed: "Playwriting legend, Terrence McNally, is a four-time Tony-award winner for Ragtime, Master Class, Love! Valour! Compassion! and Kiss of the Spiderwoman. But over the course of his prolific career, he has added more than 40 works to the American stage library. At this special Up Close event, he will be joined in conversation by the Tony Award nominee, Bobby Steggert, currently co-starring in Mothers and Sons on Broadway."
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.
