PHOTO CALL: Broadway Belts! Benefit, Featuring Andrew Rannells, Joel Grey, Adam Pascal, Darlene Love
28 Feb 2012
The second annual Broadway Belts! for PFF (Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation) benefit, featuring a star-studded lineup of performers belting out some of Broadway's most memorable songs, was offered Feb. 27 at Birdland.
The 7 PM concert was hosted by Julie Halston, who joined the cast of Roundabout's Anything Goes earlier this year.
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.
