Jennifer Holliday, Chad Kimball and More Sing Broadway Under the Stars Tonight
16 Aug 2014
Broadway Under the Stars, an evening featuring songs from a host of beloved musicals, is presented Aug. 16 at the John Anson Ford Amphitheatre in Hollywood. Tony Award nominee Obba Babatundé hosts.
Presented by Chris Isaacson, attendees can expect to hear tunes from Cabaret, Jersey Boys, Pippin, The Phantom of the Opera, Chicago, Les Miserables and Wicked as well as selections from the 2013-14 Broadway season, including Aladdin, Rocky, Hedwig and the Angry Inch and A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder.
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.
