The Playbill Vault Celebrates Tony Award Nominee Alec Baldwin
03 Apr 2014
Stage and screen actor Alec Baldwin celebrates his birthday April 3. In celebration of the Tony Award nominee, the Playbill Vault takes a look at Baldwin's Broadway performances.
Baldwin made his Broadway debut in a revival of Joe Orton's dark farce Loot, about a teenager who, with the help of his undertaker friend, robs a bank and attempts to hide the loot in his recently deceased mother's coffin.
Directed by John Tillinger, this production originated at the Manhattan Theatre Club in February 1986, starring Kevin Bacon, Željko Ivanek, Charles Keating, Joseph Maher and Zoë Wanamaker. The play received favorable reviews and transferred to Broadway's Music Box Theatre on April 7, 1986, with Baldwin replacing Bacon in the role of Dennis.
Loot's Broadway mounting was critically acclaimed and received five Tony Award nominations, including one for Best Revival. It closed June 28, 1986, following 96 performances.
