THE SCREENING ROOM: Celebrating Tony Award Winner Bernadette Peters (Video)
14 Nov 2013
Three-time Tony winner Bernadette Peters is back on the New York stage in A Bed and a Chair: A New York Love Affair, a collaboration between Tony-winning composer-lyricist Stephen Sondheim and jazz musician-composer Wynton Marsalis, which is playing a limited engagement at New York City Center through Nov. 17.
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.
