The Playbill Vault Celebrates Tony Award Winner Ann Reinking
10 Nov 2013
Reinking continues to choreograph for theatre productions, dance companies, television and film. Her latest contribution to Broadway was serving as dance consultant for An Evening with Patti LuPone and Mandy Patinkin.
The concert event reunited original Evita co-stars Patti LuPone and Mandy Patinkin. It ran for a limited engagement of 57 performances at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre.
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.
