PHOTO SPECIAL: Stars of the Stage Celebrate Mother's and Father's Day With Pics, Memories and Notes of Love to Their Parents
08 May 2014
It may be the heart of Tony Season, but we have also reached that time of the year where we pay tribute to those who gave us life by celebrating Mother's and Father's Day. Playbill.com reached out to members of the theatre community and asked them to share photos and memories of the people who created and inspired them.
The response was a massive outpouring of loving memories, old photographs, funny stories and heartfelt messages to parents both living and deceased.
Wesley Taylor: "My dad and I built a stage in the backyard, where I could enlist all my neighborhood friends to be in my plays. I was an 11-year-old dictator. It was pretty rad. I don't know how you can get more supportive than that."
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.
