A one-night-only benefit reading of David Rabe's Hurlyburly, reuniting director Scott Elliott and original cast members from the company's critically-acclaimed 2005 hit revival: Bobby Cannavale, Josh Hamilton, Ethan Hawke, Parker Posey and Wallace Shawn.
Hurlyburly depicts the addled lives of four Los Angeles men caught in love-hate relationships with Hollywood women, in a brutally comic reflection on the decade of decadence in the cocaine-and-sex infused Hollywood Hills in the mid-1980s.
Broadway stars Patti LuPone and Bobby Cannavale head the cast of The Rose Tattoo, one of Tennessee Williams' greatest plays, directed by Doug Hughes. It is the story of Serafina, a Louisiana widow who withdraws from the world after her husband's death and expects her daughter to do the same. One day, a man resembling her late husband comes into her life and unlocks her fiery passion, wit, anger and pride. This is a play of power, humanity and soaring emotion.
Patti LuPone is a two-time Tony Award recipient (Evita, Gypsy) and regularly appears on television, in films and concert halls around the world. Bobby Cannavale is an Emmy Award-winning actor (Boardwalk Empire) whose recent Broadway shows include The Big Knife, Glengarry Glen Ross and The Motherf*cker With the Hat. Doug Hughes is a noted Broadway director who won a Tony Award for Doubt.
The plays featured in the 2015 series include: The Saints by Nathan Dame, directed by Adrienne Campbell-Holt; Mechanics Of Love by Dipika Guha, directed by Gaye Taylor Upchurch; Kingdom Come by Jenny Rachel Weiner, directed by Kip Fagan; The Midnight Ride of Sean & Lucy by Amy E. Witting, directed by Daniella Topol; and Zero Feet Away by Brian Otaño, directed by Stephen Brackett.
