THE SCREENING ROOM: Happy Birthday, Annaleigh Ashford (Video)
25 Jun 2014
Annaleigh Ashford, who earned a Tony Award nomination for her performance in Kinky Boots, celebrates her birthday June 25. She will return to Broadway later this season in the revival of You Can't Take It With You.
Her career includes such roles as Glinda in Wicked, Margo in Legally Blonde, Maureen in the Off-Broadway revival of Rent and Marcy in the acclaimed Off-Broadway production of Dogfight.
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.
