26 Jun 2012
Tony Award nominee Constantine Maroulis and Grammy nominee Deborah Cox, who will headline the Broadway-bound national tour of Jekyll & Hyde, co-hosted the fourth annual National High School Musical Theater Awards June 25 at the Minskoff Theatre.
Presented at 7:30 PM at the Minskoff Theatre on Broadway, the honors, known as the "Jimmy Awards" (named for producer James M. Nederlander), welcomed 60 young students from across the country, who earned top recognition in their local high school award ceremonies.
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.
