From Mary Chase's Pulitzer Prize-winning play Harvey, starring Jim Parsons, to Cicely Tyson's return to Broadway in the Horton Foote drama The Trip to Bountiful, the final play revival of the season, here is an overview of the 12 play revivals that have opened or will open in time for the 2013 Tonys, which will take place June 9 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.
