THEIR FAVORITE THINGS: Tony Nominee and Rebecca's Howard McGillin Shares His Theatregoing Experiences
01 Aug 2012
Playbill.com's new feature series, Their Favorite Things, asks members of the theatre community to share the Broadway performances that most affected them as part of the audience.
This week we spotlight the choices of Tony Award nominee Howard McGillin, who will appear in the upcoming Broadway production of Rebecca and will play the new Manhattan nightspot 54 Below Aug. 7-8 at 8 PM.
As previously announced, the singing actor will join Tony winner — and former Anything Goes co-star — Patti LuPone as well as Norm Lewis and Seth Rudetsky on Playbill's third Broadway on the High Seas cruise.
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.
