With the 2013-14 Broadway season coming to a close this month (April 24 is the cut-off date for eligibility for the 68th Annual Tony Awards), Playbill.com offers a four-part look at the current season. Here are this season's original plays.
From the John Grisham courtroom drama A Time to Kill, adapted for the stage by Rupert Holmes, to Harvey Fierstein's new comedy Casa Valentina, the final new play of the season, here is an overview of the 12 plays that have opened or will open in time for the 2014 Tonys, which will take place June 8 at Radio City Music Hall.
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.
