Lindsay Mendez and Donna English Preview Princesses Reunion Concert at 54 Below
Lindsay Mendez, Donna English, Sierra Boggess, Patti Murin, Marissa Perry, Mary Faber, Jenny Fellner, Brent Barrett and Anne Letscher reunited Oct. 21 for a concert version of the musical Princesses at 54 Below. Written by Tony winner David Zippel, Oscar and Grammy nominee Matthew Wilder and Emmy and Golden Globe winners Cheri and Bill Steinkellner, Princesses follows a group of jaded private-school girls forced by their teacher to put on a show. Reuniting ten years after first performing the musical, Mendez and English sing two songs from the show, and talk about the experience of revisiting the material. For more information, read the Playbill.com story.
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.
