PHOTO CALL: Temple University Theater Department Celebrates 45 Years
30 Nov 2012
On Nov. 2, the Theater Department at Temple University celebrated its 45th year and honored the work of professors Daniel Boylen and Kathy Garrinella.
Notable alumni include Tony Award nominee Da’Vine Joy Randolph (Ghost), Obie Award winner Yvette Ganier (The Miracle Worker, King Hedley II), Kevin Del Aguila (Peter and the Starcatcher), Austin Durant (War Horse), Evan Jonigkeit (High), Lawrence Stallings (The Book of Mormon), Amina Robinson (Mamma Mia!), Tobias Segal (Off-Broadway’s From Up Here) and Josh Tower (The Lion King).
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.
