Oscar winner Estelle Parsons and two-time Tony nominee Celia Keenan-Bolger will be featured in the Planet Connections Theatre Festivity Gala One-Acts for a Cause June 16 at 7:30 PM at the Alice Griffin Jewelbox Theatre in the Pershing Square Signature Center.
The evening will raise funds for the non-profit Safe Horizon, the leading victim services agency in the United States.
The creative team includes Jenna R. Lazar (stage manager), Neil Patel (set design), Izzy Fields (costume design), Christopher Weston (lighting design) and Jacob Subotnick (sound design).
The Planet Connections Theatre Festivity is an eco-friendly and socially-conscious theatre, music and film festival and will run from May 29–June 23 at the Robert Moss Theatre and the Gene Frankel Theatre.
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.
