05 Apr 2012
Tony Award-winning veteran director Harold Prince will be part of an April 27 panel discussion about the legacy of Tony Award winner Edie Adams and Ernie Kovacs.
Presented at the Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria, the 7 PM event will explore the professional and personal partnership between the husband-and-wife team.
Prince (Prince of Broadway, Follies, Company, Phantom of the Opera) will join Tony nominee Robert Klein (They're Playing Our Song, The Sisters Rosensweig), Jeff Greenfield, David Bianculli and Ben Model for the panel discussion.
Adams earned a Tony Award for Li'l Abner in 1957 and also appeared as Eileen in the original Broadway cast of Wonderful Town. She hosted the television variety shows "Here's Edie" and "The Edie Adams Show."
Television pioneer Kovacs created such characters as Percy Dovetonsils, Matzoh Hepplewhite, and Uncle Gruesome in his screen work that helped shape a new brand of comedy.

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.
