24 Sep 2013
The Drama League launches its Up Close: A Conversation with... series with Tony Award winner Laura Benanti Sept. 24 at 7 PM.
The conversation, which will be moderated by Tony Award nominee Susan Blackwell, is part of the fall 2013 programming schedule of special performances, events and educational offerings at the new Drama League Theater Center in Tribeca (32 Avenue of the Americas).
"Having opened The Drama League Theater Center in May, we're excited to begin our first full season of event programming in our new home," Gabriel Shanks, Drama League executive director, said in a statement. "It's truly remarkable to be welcoming old friends like Cherry and Laura."
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.
