03 Nov 2013
@PeytonPittman: Priscilla Queen of the Desert OR Newsies!
Colfer has demonstrated his dancing abilities on the Fox series "Glee," so we're sure that he has what it takes to play a newsboy in the Disney musical Newsies. The musical, currently at Broadway's Nederlander Theatre, took home the 2012 Tony Award for Best Choreography (Christopher Gattelli).
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.
