26 Mar 2013
Young Broadway actors from such shows as Matilda, Newsies, Mary Poppins and Billy Elliot joined Annie star Lilla Crawford as she celebrated her 12th birthday March 25 at Times Square’s Cake Boss Café.
Among those in attendance were Alex Drier (The Assembled Parties, Billy Elliot), Lewis Grasso (Newsies, Ragtime), Jack Broderick (Billy Elliot, Matilda), Ava DiMary (Billy Elliot, Matilda), Emma Howard (Matilda), Sadie Sink (Annie, Tuck Everlasting), Mitchell Sink (Elf), Brooklyn Shuck (Annie), Kara Oates (Billy Elliot, Mary Poppins), Bailey Ryon (Matilda), Milly Shapiro (Matilda), Molly Oates (Elmo the Musical) and Ellie Oates (ABC’s “What Would You Do?” Nickelodeon’s “Playful Parent and “World Wide Day of Play”)
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.
