Playbill.com looks at several artists who are a Tony Award short of EGOT status and suggests roles that could win them the final trophy.
Accomplished actors like Kate Winslet, Cher and Robin Williams already have shelves filled with trophies, including at least one Emmy, Grammy and Oscar apiece. But the one award that has eluded the members of this group is a Tony, honoring the best performances on Broadway.
Many would love to see Winslet make her debut on the Great White Way or Williams bring his charisma and acting chops back to the New York stage. To help this starry group attain EGOT status, Playbill.com selected roles that could garner them a Tony Award!
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.
