06 Sep 2012
Jordan Roth, president of Jujamcyn Theaters, will tie the knot with producer Richie Jackson this weekend at Broadway's Al Hirschfeld Theatre, a spokesperson for Roth confirmed to Playbill.com.
Roth, whose Jujamcyn Theaters produced the 2012 Tony Award-winning play Clybourne Park, will wed Jackson onstage at the Hirschfeld, which is currently vacant until the holiday musical Elf begins Broadway previews Nov. 5.
Jujamcyn Theaters, which owns and operates five Broadway theatres including the Hirschfeld, the St. James, the August Wilson, the Eugene O'Neill and the Walter Kerr, has recently produced Leap of Faith, Finian's Rainbow, Desire Under the Elms, Hair, A Catered Affair and A Bronx Tale, among others.
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.
