Edward Albee, Elaine Stritch and More to Discuss Stella Adler Oct. 1
13 Sep 2012
Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Edward Albee and Tony-winning actress Elaine Stritch will be among the theatre professionals who will discuss the life, legacy and impact of late actress and teacher Stella Adler Oct. 1 in Manhattan.
Held at the Stella Adler Studio of Acting at 7 PM, the panel will unite Albee (Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?), Stritch (A Delicate Balance), Kate Mulgrew (Equss), director Howard Shalwitz and Tom Oppenheim of the Stella Adler Studio of Acting.
Billed as "What Can the American Theater Learn from Stella Adler?," the discussion is inspired by a newly published collection of Adler's lectures, which focus on Ablee, Eugene O'Neill, Clifford Odets, Tennessee Williams, Arthur Miller and more.
The evening is presented as part of the Stella Adler Studio of Acting Festival. Tickets are priced $20. Visit stellaadler.com.
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.
