PHOTO CALL: Jim Belushi Receives Sardi's Caricature
27 Jun 2011
Jim Belushi was honored June 25 with a caricature that now adorns the walls of famed eatery Sardi's. Belushi starred in the Broadway revival of Born Yesterday which ended its engagement June 26.
The production played 28 previews and 73 performances at the Cort Theatre. Tony winner Doug Hughes directed the revival of the 1946 Broadway hit that also starred Nina Arianda and Robert Sean Leonard. It opened April 24 following previews from March 31.
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.
