The tribute and costume ball is being produced by Lou Adler and Kevin Duncan. The evening benefits Paul Newman's Hole in the Wall Camp Painted Turtle.
Adler, who was the executive producer of the 1975 "Rocky Horror" film, told Variety, "It is terrific to have such a diverse cast of actors in support of a great cause -- The Painted Turtle. Each of these individuals will bring a unique performance to the tribute and make for an incredibly memorable evening."
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.
