Nina Arianda and Sam Rockwell Aren't Fooling With Fool for Love on Opening Night

When Sam Shepard's in the audience, actors put on their game face and give the best performance they can.

"Ask the eleven-year-old Nina how she feels!" Tony winner Nina Arianda excitedly says upon making her long-awaited Broadway return in Sam Shepard's Fool for Love at Manhattan Theatre Club's Samuel J. Friedman Theatre. Arianda wasn't alone in her enthusiasm: Fellow cast members Sam Rockwell, Tom Pelphrey, and Gordon Joseph Weiss were also over the moon on their opening night, and not just because it was a great show. Playwright Shepard was in attendance to provide the cast with his blessing. And they were too thrilled for words.
