Broadway on the High Seas 3: A High Time With Patti LuPone, Norm Lewis and Howard McGillin
Playbill's third Broadway on the High Seas cruise (Aug. 4-14, 2013) was a Baltic adventure featuring stops in Stockholm, Turku, Helsinki, St. Petersburg, Berlin and Copenhagen. Guest performers Patti LuPone, Norm Lewis and Howard McGillin were hosted by Seth Rudetsky, who also served as musical arranger and accompanist. The trip featured in-depth Broadway Chatterbox interviews, full-length concerts and some surprises — Anything Goes co-stars LuPone And McGillin had a special reunion and a former '70s and '80s TV star popped in for a song and an interview. Broadway on the High Seas 4 will visit Tahiti and surrounding French Polynesian Islands in early 2014 and boasts the likes of Audra McDonald, Sutton Foster and Brian Stokes Mitchell.
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.
